Merridy Eastman has taken us into brothels in There's a Bear in There and on tour searching for true love and a perfect husband in Ridiculous Expectations. We were there when she found the man of her dreams in Germany! Who knew?
In How Now Brown Frau? there are hilarious consequences as she takes up residence in Munich and drags us headlong into her new husband's straight-laced Bavarian family, climbs excruciating language barriers, and grapples with a culture that seems at times to be on some other planet. It is laugh-out-loud funny and all the more so for being completely true. This is What Merridy Did Next.
A NIDA graduate, Merridy Eastman has performed in a swag of productions for the Melbourne and Sydney Theatre Companies and spent several summers leaping about botanical gardens across Australia, bringing Shakespeare to the masses. She has had major roles in such classic soap operas as Neighbours, Blue Heelers, and Always Greener, where she played the much-loved neurotic, Eileen Unn. She is the author of the best-selling There's A Bear In There and Ridiculous Expectations. Despite this varied and illustrious career, Merridy has come to accept that for generations of kiddies she will always be Merridy-from-Play School, thanks to a five-year stint on the show in the 1980s.
