Nick Earls’s most recent published work, the novella series Wisdom Tree, has been called ‘a triumphant and extraordinary piece of fiction’ by the Sydney Morning Herald, and now there’s more – a live version, featuring Nick Earls and Chanel Lucas of much-loved Queensland band women in docs.
Wisdom Tree Live combines words and music – the stories behind the novellas, readings and songs – into a 90-minute show. It’s full of laughs, poignancy, great insights into the creative process and beautiful music, including songs by Paul Kelly, Leonard Cohen, originals and songs that demand singing along to.
Staged to acclaim at festivals around Australia, it’s time Wisdom Tree Live made its Bribie Island debut.
Nick Earls is the author of 26 books. Two of his novels have become feature films and five have become stage plays. His Wisdom Tree novellas have so far won five awards in Australia and the US and been shortlisted for five more.
Chanel Lucas is a writer and musician who has toured extensively in Australia and internationally with her band women in docs. Her music has been played on ABC Radio, Triple J and on U.S. TV shows, and reached the Top 10 of the U.S. Blues and Roots Charts.
