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.


Event Access

Suitable for all ages.

Latecomers will be admitted at an appropriate break in the performance.

Venue Access

There is a level access drop-off point next to the theatre on Gona Pde.

The nearest designated accessible parking spaces are:

In the QUT open-air carpark on the corner of Musk Ave and Gona Parade (across the road from the Roundhouse)
Along Musk Ave on the street. Please note that the spaces are on an incline and access to the theatre may be difficult from this point.
Opposite the restaurants on Carraway St in the Kelvin Grove Village. From there, simply cross at the pedestrian crossing and take the glass elevator up to the top level, then make your way through the courtyard to get to La Boite.
The Roundhouse Theatre has a raised platform at the top of the theatre for wheelchair users (75mm high, raised over 730mm). Additional seats can be added to accommodate guests (space permitting). Wheelchair users may transfer to fixed theatre seats if they choose, provided that permission is granted for La Boite staff to store their wheelchairs during the performance, where possible.

Fixed seats in the Roundhouse Theatre are accessed via stairs (16.5cm high, 27.5cm deep). Please note that due to the nature of the curved seating bank there is not a continuous hand rail. Patrons who wish to avoid stairs may book tickets in the Wheelchair/ No Stairs section of the theatre (these are available on the ticketing site). Patrons who wish to minimise the number of stairs navigated may book seats at the top or bottom of the theatre, or contact our box office team to discuss their requirements.

Patrons may request extra time to enter the theatre and navigate stairs/aisle prior to the doors being opened to the general public to assist with safety and comfort.

An accessible restroom is available on Level 1 of the building, approximately 10m from the theatre doors.

Our venues have indoor and outdoor quiet spaces for those with sensory sensitivities. Please make our venue staff aware (they will have La Boite t-shirts on) if you would like to access these spaces.

Assistance animals (qualified and in-training) are welcome in the Roundhouse Theatre, the La Boite Studio, the Espresso Bar and the La Boite Administration Office.
