A brand-new work from the pen of award-winning writer-director Joanna Weinberg is set to premiere at Sydney Fringe this September… and it marks the stunning solo debut of comedian and actor Jodine Holli Wolman.

Minky Opens a Gallery is a hilarious multi-character tour-de-force that propels its audiences into the alternately glitzy and sordid world of the art establishment. Following Minky you’ll learn the dos and don’ts of how to turn the art world upside-down to win your art gallery infamy within six short weeks.                                                   M

Minky Westin is a sharp-talking, substance-abusing, poor little rich girl, whose every move is snapped by the paparazzi.  Her Rich List father has given her six weeks to make something of herself or be disinherited. Desperate to impress him, Minky tries to open an art gallery… with no prior knowledge of art. Smarter than she looks, she quickly gets to grips with an industry whose rules are more business than art. Will her daring final move put her on the map forever or leave the paparazzi baying for her blood?


Minky Opens a Galleryis a one-woman tell-all with a breathtaking rollercoaster ride to the final showdown. It’s the latest work by Joanna Weinberg (The Secret Singer, Pandora’s Bag, Baroness Bianka’s Bloodsongs, the Piano Diaries, Goddess and winner of the 2013 fringe music theatre award for Lifeforce – the mother of all journeys).

This hilarious new satire of the art establishment from an award-winning playwright features the tour-de-force comic debut from the new kid on the block.
