Pricking Thumbs presents


Written & directed by Sue Ingleton

PREVIEW PERFORMANCE - Wednesday 16 - Tickets $15 only

 An hilarious and passionate play which throws two ill-matched, mature-aged housewives together to write an essay on Hamlet’s incriminating line: ‘Frailty, thy name is woman.’
 Under Sue Ingleton’s direction, brilliant performers, Bev Geldard & Bridget Haylock take a roller coaster ride to where the rails end! If you think you know everything about ‘Hamlet’ and women- you’re wrong!

 ‘ absolute delight to watch the actors’ consummate performances. Sue’s amazing writing skills, blending the comedic with the dramatic, take us on a journey where angels fear to tread.. the audience was  totally engaged. I loved the last line, it was a powerfully poignant and brilliant touch bringing together all the strands of what had been going on between these two women.’ Toorak Times

‘… Genius acting make this a piss your pants funny show. Think the comedic trade skills of a Neil Simon, or a David Williamson. Ingleton is them in a frock (and then some!). Frailty will tour Australia. Frailty will tour the world. If not I’ll gnaw my arm off to the elbow!’ John Romeril


‘ I had the honour to witness an incredible, provocative and moving performance of a play called “Frailty”. Beautifully and skillfully written & directed by Sue Ingleton and performed by Bev Geldard and Bridget Haylock. - it was a tour de force, you could have staged it anywhere and it would have been brilliant. This is a magic, powerful, massive piece of theatre. Try and get to see it.’  A. Le Clerq
