Last Cab to Darwin

A fundraising performance of this iconic Australian play.

Last Cab to Darwin is a 2003 Australian drama/comedy stage play written by Reg Cribb and based upon the true story of taxi driver Max Bell who was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer in the early 1990s. Taking advantage of the controversial Northern Territory’s Voluntary euthanasia law Rex decides to end his own life with dignity. His request under the law is in bitter dispute but Rex sells up everything he owned, says goodbye to his neighbor and good friend Polly, and drives the great distance from Broken Hill, New South Wales to Darwin, Northern Territory where taking his own life would be legal. The 2003 production was presented both at the Sydney Opera House and the Octagon Theatre in Perth.

Here’s your chance to see a local performance at the Old Mill Theatre under the direction of Trevor Dhu. Our fundraising performance includes sherry/port before the show and a sumptuous afternoon tea afterwards.

Time: 2.00 pm
Cost: $30.00
Tickets are available by ringing 0408 915 718 or email: info@sisouthperth.org.au

Relay for Life 2018

From the  first time in participating in the Cancer Council WA’s Relay for Life, SISP has taken on the challenge of raising much-needed funds for research into this dreadful disease.

Our Soroptimist Sunflowers team has been prominent trackside every year and this year we were honoured with an award for raising over $55,000 since 2002.

Well done to everyone involved – our team members, donors and supporters – over the weekend.

Thank you again, we really appreciate it!
