Three Chords and the Truth

Thu 12 October at 6:30 pm - 7:50 pm

Everyone has a song inside them but it takes courage to sing it out loud

Angie could have been one of Australia’s leading musicians, but she sabotaged her own career. Now in her forties, she’s dying and alone – but determined to record one last album. Money is tight and the odd gig at the local pub doesn’t exactly fill the coffers. When she meets teenage runaway Ruby, the pair form an unlikely bond. Angie teaches her to play the guitar and write songs, but despite their closeness Angie just can’t bring herself to tell Ruby the truth about her illness. Marshall’s own songs, and resonant voice, alongside the Newcastle setting, bring a tender authenticity to this rebellious music-driven drama.
