‘Sketches of Myrtle’ by Matt Petherbridge

Overview

‘Sketches of Myrtle’ is an exploration of songs, poetry and inspiration showcased by Maitland creative and performing artist, Matt Petherbridge, untitled as ‘Myrtle Rock Opera’.

An ongoing performance series, ‘Sketches…’ showcases Petherbridge’s work through the lens of Myrtle, a death bed fairytale inspired by parenthood, creativity, deepest worries and overcoming the depths of grief and death.

Debuting at the 2023 Newcastle Fringe Festival, Sketches of Myrtle, Petherbridge has evolved in unexpected venues such as Maitland Taste Festival, Hamilton Station Hotel and Maitland Heritage Festival, as well as cameos at Newcastle and Hunter Valley Folk Club and Temple of the Stag, the 90s grunge inspired jam night at The Stag and Hunter. ‘Sketches of Myrtle’ marks a new chapter in Petherbridge’s oeuvre, striving for a magnum opus that draws upon his past lives in music journalism, theatre, poetry and songwriting.

As an opening act, Brendan Dennerley will be performing ‘Dennis’.
