The secret lives of sisters.
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.
Heiss has developed Tiddas for the stage, introducing Brisbane audiences to the story’s inimitable stars: Izzy, Veronica, Xanthe, Nadine and Ellen.
