The Brides of Frank were one of Queensland's foremost independent theatre companies and cultural exports throughout the 2000s. The Brides comprised the diversely talented Caroline Dunphy, Lisa O'Neill, Emma Louise Pursey, Leah Shelton and Neridah Waters. Collectively they created a new style of theatre: precision camp. Oozing glamour, parody, schmooze and dysfunction, they used their Suzuki-based training through Frank Theatre to create critically acclaimed comedic performances that shocked and enthralled audiences everywhere they went.
