Underground is the story of an adventurous and iconic Australian woman during one of history’s darkest periods. But Nancy Wake doesn’t want another layer of gold paint added to the legend of The White Mouse. What happened in France in 1944 changed her forever but this time no-one is messing with her story…she tells it her way, with trademark roguishness. She evaded capture by the Gestapo and was one of only thirteen female special agents to survive the war. Was the price she paid too high?
In this hallucinatory review of her life directed by Sara Grenfell, Nancy’s story unfolds with humour and pathos, together with a cast of comrades from the forests of France - among them a mysterious German spy and cabaret singer who performs Marlene Dietrich’s most beloved songs.
Starring Margot Knight from 'Prisoner'.
