My first ever TV interview: “Theatre Thespians” Briz31

I cannot even bring myself to watch it yet, I am that nervous about seeing myself on the screen.


Will you go in first? I promise I’ll throw down a rope and haul you back out if it gets too much.

My Show is Turning Into a School Reunion (or “Is It Possible to Drop 4 Dress Sizes in 2 weeks?)

With less than two weeks to go, I’m both thrilled and terrified to note that a significant number of tix and RSVPS for the upcoming show at Brisbane Powerhouse are from folks I went to school with some fifteen + years ago.

Celebrating 9 years of the Kindness of a Stranger (or “The Jacket”)

  2002. I’m a new mother on one of my FIRST NIGHTS EVER out of the house since my darling Ella arrived. It’s a balmy evening in West End and my friends and I are enjoying some groovy tunes downstairs at Tongue and Groove. In the bathroom, I see a woman wearing a red, flower-coveredContinue Reading

“Putting the Family Last.” (WARNING: Major Rant Ahead).

FOR THE RECORD… I was a Vegetarian for 7 years. During this time, I noticed an interesting, if slightly irritating, phenomena. When certain people would discover my lifestyle of choice, they would leap to a, shall we say “offence as defence” strategy of listing all the reasons why eating meat was better for you andContinue Reading

Announcing my Solo Show at Brisbane Powerhouse September 9!

YAY! I am so pumped to finally be showing this in Brisbane. It is the fruit of YEARS of work, tears and unadulterated joy. In fact, it’s the primary reason for not going for baby number four.
