Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

Some of Australia’s most-loved actresses star in the new Australian comedy Biddies, which takes a lighthearted look at being female (and mature) in today’s world. Biddies, by renowned playwright Don Reid, plays at NORPA Lismore City Hall on Friday 15 June at 7.30pm.

Biddies follows the highly successful 2010 production Codgers, the award-winning comedy that dealt with the senior Aussie male in comic and touching fashion. ‘Codgers was unashamedly about men,’ says Don.

‘Many of those who saw it, very often female, asked me, “Well and good, but how about a play dealing with women?” The idea became irresistible.’

In Biddies, a group of 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.

For tickets call NORPA Box Office 1300 066 772 (Mon–Fri 9am–2pm) or purchase online at www.norpa.org.au.
