See Belinda Giblin as ‘Stella Goldschlag’ in a performance that gained her a nomination as Best Actress in a Leading Role in an Independent Production at the 2015 Sydney Theatre Awards.

Based on a true story, Blonde Poison is an award winning play about beauty, treachery and the high price of survival. Stella Goldschlag was living illegally in war torn Berlin when she was betrayed and tortured. When offered the chance of saving herself and her parents from the death camps, she agreed to be a ‘catcher’ of other Jews for the Gestapo. She was given the name “Blonde Poison by the Gestapo.

The vast dimensions of Stella’s character range from tortured victim to cruel killer, from loving daughter and mother to betrayer of friends, from gentle lover to depraved promiscuity. Decades after the war Stella agrees to be interviewed by a childhood friend, now a respected journalist -her last chance at redemption. Can she ever be released from her past?

Coming to Southbank Theatre, the Lawler after a triumphant season at the Sydney Opera House.
