A moving true-life musical tribute to the heart, hilarity and sheer hard work of one man’s migrant experience. Igniting memories of a story that millions of Australians can relate to, Michaela Burger pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and hard-working, fun loving larrikin father Luke who defied all odds.

From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy at age sixteen and opening a chain of discount supermarkets in Adelaide, Luke’s road was not one for the faint-hearted.

Premiering to a sell-out Adelaide Cabaret Festival season and Winner of the Frank Ford and Best Cabaret weekly awards for Adelaide Fringe 2019, this critically acclaimed work conveys tells an incredible true story, brought to life through original music written & performed by Burger alongside local community choirs.

Featuring a live band, including piano and bouzouki, Michaela tells her family story with poignancy, heart and comical aplomb. The show is both hard-hitting and hilarious, traversing 100 years from Russia to the Australian outback—following the hardship, ingenuity, tragedy and triumph in all migrants’ stories.
