Musical Theatre Ensemble

The Sydney University Musical Society (MUSE) are proud to present The Hatpin, an Australian musical inspired by the true story of Amber Murray who in 1892 gave up her son to the Makin family in Sydney, Australia.

A moving and hopeful story about friendship and courage. Dealing with motherhood, poverty and the resilience of women thriving under extraordinary pressures, this show looks at the public’s judgment of private choice, the power of self-liberty and the notion of “care”.
