Five women, best friends for decades, meet once a month to talk about books, lovers, and the jagged bits of life 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.

Anita Heiss’ own adaptation of her much-loved novel is paying a visit from its home town in Brisbane as part of Sydney Festival’s Blak Out program.

This play wears its heart on its sleeve, an upbeat start to the year. Plenty of laughs, but there are serious questions that come out of it – about reading and writing in black and white Australia, about whatever reconciliation is now, and about the truths, half-truths and outright lies we tell ourselves. – Eamon
