On Monday night a favourite Australian TV character is revived for one night only when ‘Frankie Doyle’ makes a rare appearance on stage.
Actress Carol Burns will resurrect her famed Prisoner role as part of the fundraising Hats Off BrizVegas event at the Playhouse, QPAC. She first played the tough lesbian role in 1979.
The Prisoner Sketch will also feature Brisbane actresses including Penny Everingham as Lizzie Birdsworth (originally Sheila Florence) Karen Crone as Doreen Burns (originally Collette Mann); Sue Dwyer as Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson (originally Maggie Kirkpatrick) and Amy Ingram as Roo Morgan (originally Sally McKenzie).
The sketch is written by Paul Dellit and Kelly Lefever (an original writer for Prisoner).
Proceeds from this concert will benefit The HOPE Fund to assist people living with HIV/AIDS.
Tickets are $40. Bookings: 136 246.
