Minding kids is anything but child's play!

The Play

Your first day in a new job can be overwhelming at any time.

How about when it is in a child care centre, nearly all of your colleagues have called in sick, and you have a hostage situation on your hands?  How do you deal with the fraught parents of the children that have been placed in your care?

Child care has never looked so chaotic, or funny. 

A contemporary Brisbane play that shows the challenges, heartache and joy faced by parents and their paid helpers.

 

The Playwright

Elise Greig is one of Queensland's most exciting new writers. Crèche and Burn was a hit at La Boite in 2005 and was followed by a 10 week national tour. Elise was one of the writers for the television pilot 37 Skit Row  and also wrote the critically acclaimed Ditto for the Shock of the New Festival.

Also one of Australia's leading voice over artists, Elise is a Matilda Award winning actor, having been recognised for her contribution to Queensland theatre on three occasions.
