CRIBBIE

by Margery Forde, Michael Forde

Cribbie: Gone but not forgotten.

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.
