Kate Leigh - The Worst Woman in Sydney

Libby O'Donovan

From the 1920’s to the 1940’s Kate Leigh was the Queen of Sydney’s criminal underworld. 107 convictions, 13 stretches in gaol and a peddler of cocaine; was she really  the ‘worst woman in Sydney’? In this powerful and sassy performance, cabaret and jazz singer Libby O’Donovan revisits the myths surrounding this criminal mastermind. Weaving story with powerful songwriting Libby casts a bright new light on Leigh’s fierce and fabulous life.
