Biddies comes to Brisbane & the Sunshine Coast!


Season 2012

Vulnerable, feisty and in full bloom, these gals are everything – except old!

Five ordinarily marvellous women find themselves back in their infants school classroom plying their needles in a good old-fashioned session of “stitch and bitch”.  Their confessions are frank, their rivalries intense and their jokes outrageous.  They discover a common frustration with the limitations of being female and mature in a world still largely defined by men.

Accidentally locked in the classroom, with nothing but ingenuity, Adora Cream Wafers and a bucket to get them through the crisis, unknown reserves come to the fore. Released from their own constraints, they rediscover their capacity to love, forgive – and take control. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

Men see their wives, adult children see their mothers, grandchildren see Nana and the matureAustralian woman sees herself…

Don Reid’s play CODGERS was a touring favourite in 2010, described by the Sydney Morning Herald as“…a heart-warming comedy…you’re in the hands of skilled experts who really do know what they’re doing, how to do it and why.”

Now it’s time to hear from the ladies, as some of Australia’s most beloved actresses bring this delightful new comedy to the stage. You’ll laugh till you cry. Move over Codgers, the Biddies are in town…

Vulnerable, feisty and in full bloom, these gals are everything – except old!
