Jye's newest musical creation, CAPTAIN MOONLITE, the largely unknown story of Andrew George Scott (based on the Death Cell Letters of A.G. Scott) will premiere at Redcliffe Musical Theatre (QLD) from 21-30th August, 2020! And after 7 international seasons, Jye's musical, The Things I Could Never Tell Steven, will be staged this November at Riverside Theatre's Parramatta by the National Theatre of Parramatta.
Jye is currently working on a new Australian musical, True Blue, with Sydney-based playwright, Maxine Appel-Cohen, about Jye's famous convict ancestor, Billy Blue who was born to escaped African American slaves in Long Island, New York. He somehow ended up in England after the American War of Independence before stealing sugar and being sent to New South Wales in 1801. Stay tuned to learn more about this quirky character of colonial Sydney!
Another project in the pipeline is a collaboration with Nicole Smith, The Oldest Profession! Watch this space for updates!
