Cribbie - The suburb that disappeared

Cribbie is a play with music which tells the story of CribbIsland, a long lost bayside suburb of Brisbane that was completely demolished in the early 1980s to make way for the new Brisbane International Airport. Cribb Island was once an isolated, tight knit community of Aussie battlers who found refuge and cheaper living during The Great Depression.

Full of vibrant residents, from the policeman who hadn’t made an arrest in ten years, to the musical family that went on to become the Bee Gees, ‘Cribbie’ was much loved by its people. Their stories were in danger of being lost forever – Cribbie keeps their stories alive. Told in a touching and entertaining way, Cribbie is a heart-warming, nostalgic story of the community that was forced to leave the place they called home.

Based on interviews writers Margery & Michael Forde (Way Out West, X-Stacy) conducted with dozens of former residents, this play is a great example of theatre which is suitable for people of all ages. The four actors who bring Cribbie to life are Louise Brehmer, Sandro Colarelli, Kevin Hides and Erin Murphy.

“Joy and tears all round…local history as it should be told” – Alison Cotes, reviewer,
