Brisbane, 2022. Five women, best friends for decades, meet once a month to talk about books, life, love and the jagged bits in between.Dissecting each other’s lives seems the most natural thing in the world and honesty, no matter how brutal, is something they treasure.


Best friends tell each other everything, don’t they? But each woman carries a complex secret and one weekend, without warning, everything comes unstuck.


Tiddas is a page-to-stage adaptation of Anita Heiss’s best-selling novel in a joint La Boite Theatre, QPAC and Brisbane Festival production. I had the absolute pleasure of yarning with theatre goers and the amazing cast members on the second preview night. Join me as we hear from a really diverse range of audience members and hear all about the cast’s thoughts and experiences so far.


Tiddas plays La Boite from 5 – 24 September. Get your tickets here –
