“I really loved it, the suspense in the audience was incredible and Hawthorne is fantastic.” – Amber-Leigh Woolf, THE DOMINION POST
Legendary stage actress Elizabeth Hawthorne ONZM, whose stellar career spans 40 years, stars in her first solo show.
Based on true events Blonde Poison tells the haunting story of Stella Goldschlag, a young Jewish woman living illegally in war-torn Berlin. Stella saved herself and her family from Gestapo death camps by becoming a ‘Greifer’ (catcher), who informed on other Jews in hiding. Extremely successful, she was nicknamed ‘Blonde Poison’ by the Gestapo, due to her blonde hair and ruthless efficiency.
Some 50 years later she agrees to be interviewed. The past is about to catch up with her.
