With Fire in her Heart: The Edith Cowan Story celebrates the remarkable life of Edith Cowan, the first woman elected to the Australian parliament. This year marks the centennial of Edith’s achievements in Australian politics and this wonderful play brings to life her remarkable story. From her early life growing up near Geraldton, dealing with death and loss to a trail-blazing career as a social reformer, Edith worked tirelessly for the rights and welfare of woman and children. Don’t miss this uniquely West Australian story.
