Paper Stars


Event Date: 3 November 2021
Author / Presenters: Book by Grace Chapple & Miranda Middleton Music and Lyrics by Luke Byrne

Everyone knows her as the woman who created Mary Poppins, but who was P.L Travers before she became famous? PAPER STARS is a new Australian musical which theatricalises the early career of one of Australia’s most successful storytellers. Inspired by true events (yet told with a healthy spoonful of imagination), it follows the intrepid Helen Lyndon Goff as she leaves home – with just a feather and a carpet bag – to forge a career for herself in London. While she successfully reinvents herself as P.L Travers, and finds the inspiration to write her world-famous novel, she must also deal with some baggage from her past… 

With a whimsical book by Grace Chapple and Miranda Middleton, and an original score by Luke Byrne, PAPER STARS is a story about learning how to cope in a dark world, and finding magic in real people and things, rather than fantasy. 

In order to fly, you need something solid to take off from” – P.L. Travers, OBE
