The Brides were an ensemble comprising of 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 dynamic comedic performances that shocked, enthralled and delighted audiences everywhere they went.
