2002-2016      The Brides of Frank
                         Co-Director / Founding Member / Performer
The Brides of Frank were one of Queensland's foremost independent theatre companies and cultural exports throughout the 2000s.

The Brides were an ensemble comprising of the diversely talented Caroline Dunphy, Lisa O'Neill, Emma Louise Pursey, Leah Shelton and Neridah Waters. Collectively they created a new style of theatre: precision camp. Oozing glamour, parody, schmooze and dysfunction, they used their Suzuki-based training through Frank Theatre to create dynamic comedic performances that shocked, enthralled and delighted audiences everywhere they went.
