After a sold-out run and nomination for Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe, Megan Mckay brings Born Prepared: 1980's Brownie Guide to Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
1980’s Australia. Every week thousands of young girls assembled at church halls and sporting club rooms, members of a very special flock: The Brownie Guides.
Clad in yellow skivvies, brown tunics and berets, they sang, danced, worked to attain badges and learnt skills that would set them up for life. Or did they? Does accruing a record number of Special Interest Badges really set you on the path to success?
Born Prepared is a warm, nostalgic look at the sometimes very strange world of 80’s Brownies, the weird traditions, The Promise and the badges. So many badges.
If you went there you'll relate. If you didn't, you'll experience the rapt fascination of someone listening to cult survivors. But above all, it's funny. What else would you expect from someone who's earned their Entertainers badge?
