Tiddas

Tiddas

The secret lives of sisters.

World Premiere

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’ best-selling novel directed by Nadine McDonald-Dowd.

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

The personal is political in this joyful, and poignant novel of five women friends on the cusp of turning 40. Tiddas is also a love letter to Brisbane, and the writing celebrates the fact that the women have all ended up in a city where they have a sense of place.
