“The audience was transported back in time. There was much laughter, cheers and tears. Cribb Island had come back to life.” – Gary Thorpe,
4MBS Classic FM

Cribbie is musical, verbatim play about Brisbane’s lost suburb of Cribb Island – a charming seaside spot that became the Brisbane Airport in the 1980s.

Cribb Island was once an isolated, tight knit community of Aussie battlers who found refuge and cheap 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 the people who called it home. But when the suburb was resumed for the expansion of the Airport, the community
was torn apart.

Based on interviews with the suburbs former residents and written by Michael and Margery Forde, Cribbie is a heartwarming, nostalgic story of the community that was forced to leave the place they called home.

Cribbie was first performed at Metro Arts Brisbane on 26
Novemeber 2009.
