The spotlight shines brightly on our latest FORTY star: multi-award winning actor, director, producer, playwright, and author, Leah Purcell.
A mesmerising storyteller and proud Goa-Gunggari-Wakka Wakka Murri woman, Leah takes us on a journey from her childhood as the youngest of seven children, to why the death of her much-loved mother set her free, her fierce love for netball, and how yelling a promise into the Snowy Mountains birthed her play, book, and upcoming feature film, The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson.
Leah wrote a list of dreams and aspirations at 15, 21, and again at 40.
Now 50, has she ticked them all off?
And what happens when you believe you can be who you want to be?
We find out in FORTY.
