About the playwright -
Elizabeth is a screenwriter, playwright, and novelist.
Elizabeth first came to attention with her wonderfully dark comedy, It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To) which premiered at the 1993 Melbourne Comedy Festival. Its success was eclipsed with the arrival of Secret Bridesmaids’ Business in 1999 which broke box office records in Melbourne before embarking on a national tour in 2000 and in 2010 was revived for a new production in Melbourne. It was later adapted into a telemovie produced by Linda House for ABC Television and was adapted again last year into a 6 part series for Channel 7 under the same name.
