BACKGROUND:

BREAST WISHES is an all Australian musical about love, life, loss and silicon; a witty and heart-warming journey of courage and determination through laughter to triumph.

A celebration of breasts and those who support them, BREAST WISHES is written by some of Australia's most respected comedic and dramatic writers.

Meet four women - sisters, mothers, daughters, cousins. Add a fumbling boyfriend, a well-meaning husband, a bra-fitter who's seen it all together with show-stopping numbers and you have a sophisticated and hilarious glimpse of cleavage and beyond which promises to make your heart sing.

The genesis for BREAST WISHES was born out of a desire to create a show to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. This group of writers were compelled and inspired to make a difference to the thousands of women - friends, mums, grandmothers, sisters, cousins - and men who are affected by this disease.

So here is a story inspired grown from a small collective experience, which turned out to be in part, everyone’s story - that of life, love, loss, family, identity and above all the humour and determination which drives us all to survive.

The show is proudly supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

STORY:

BREAST WISHES takes place in various locales and time periods. It follows the journey of a family and the events that have shaped their breasts. Lyn is a warm, open, earth-mother with voluptuous breasts and is married to breast-loving everyman David. Her sister Carol is flat-chested and highly strung in the midst of a mid life crisis. Their cousin Sal is young, sexy and self absorbed. Their mother Helen has embraced all things new-age. Irene – the quintessential bra-fitter is our wise overseer.
