Six feisty older women shine a light on family violence. The show will make you laugh and cry as you listen to true stories of women’s experiences. And our puppets Reg and Regina will try to get a word in. Don’t Knock Your Granny has its roots in political activism when in 1988 a small band of women performed original skits and songs in front of the Australian Parliament House, Canberra. We wanted politicians and the media to get the message that older women were sick of being ignored in policymaking. We wanted action.
