Six women on the brink. Which one are you?
Meet Meryl, mother of three, desperately trying to find her sanity, the baby’s socks, and time for a coffee. Then there’s Theresa, blushing bride-to-be, walking down the aisle with the love of her life. Or so she thought. And of course Zoe Struthers, siren of the stage, making her illustrious comeback, aided with the help of a little tipple…
Joy, drama, crisis, fear, revelation – there are times in life where you have to remain absolutely cool and calm on the outside.
The inside, meanwhile, is let loose to a flailing monologue of personal pep talks, perish-the-thoughts and perpetual PANIC!
Multi-award winning Australian playwright and author Joanna Murray-Smith’s highly acclaimed play Bombshells is a journey from crisis to hilarity, via the secret thoughts of a group of women all linked by more than just their proximity to the edge.
With singing, dancing, comedy and the joys of sheer honesty, this extraordinary one-woman show strips back the façade at a whirlwind pace to reveal the things that sometimes, we’d just love to say out loud.
Bombshells stars powerhouse performer Christen O’Leary. A critically acclaimed stage actor, Christen is a winner of the coveted Helpmann Award and has been nominated for seven Green Room Awards, winning twice.
[…] the play derives a lot of appeal from the comedy, or perhaps mild horror, of recognition. Murray-Smith’s words are concisely crafted to hold a mirror up to everyday life, including the bits that people try to conceal from each other. It’s clever and sometimes affecting: compassionate towards its characters and their attempts to deal with chaos.
