Sisters Eliza and Hannah are writers, directors and performers for film and television.

Eliza and Hannah created ABC1’s television series GROWING UP GRACEFULLY which they wrote, directed and appeared in.  Sketches from the first series have been viewed collectively more than 15 million times on the ABC Facebook page; most notably their sketch “3.43” – a musical number about the gender pay gap – has almost 8 million views.

Eliza and Hannah received funding through Screen Australia’s ‘Gender Matters’ program to produce their web series pilot, SHEILAS, a comedy series on amazing and forgotten women of Australian History. Since delivering the pilot, Screen Australia funded a further series in 2018.

Their writing has been featured on ABC TV’s THE CHECKOUT, in Sydney Comedy Festival where their show LADY BITS premiered in 2015, and the Sydney Writers Festival. Most recently the sisters hosted the ADG Awards 2019.

Hannah previously hosted Triple J’s podcast THE HOOK UP which takes a topical look at sexuality for a young audience, and she has been a regular guest on ABC 702s Afternoons with James Valentine.  Hannah and Eliza hosted GIRLS GONE MILD on FBI in Sydney for five years.

Together, Hannah and Eliza are co-creators of YARRAMADOON, a comedy debate held at Giant Dwarf Theatre. Off the back of the success of this, they created and staged a musical of the same name at 25A Downstairs at Belvoir.

Individually, Eliza’s stage acting has lead her to theatre companies such as 505, KXT, Melbourne Fringe, The Old Fitz and Brevity Theatre; and Hannah wrote and directed the short film GREAT DAY, which was a finalist at Tropfest in 2013.
