Elizabeth Coleman first came to the attention of Australian audiences with her dark comedy It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To) at 1993’s Melbourne Comedy Festival. Its success was eclipsed with the arrival of Secret Bridesmaids’ Business in 1999 that broke box office records in Melbourne before embarking on a national tour in 2000. It was later adapted into a telemovie produced by Lynda House for ABC Television.

Her comedy about love gone wrong, This Way Up premiered in 2001 at Playbox Theatre in Melbourne. Elizabeth has written several screenplays for television, including SeaChange, Heartbreak High, The Secret Life of Us, Blue Heelers, All Saints and McLeod’s Daughters.

She has co-created and co-written a drama series entitled Bed of Roses, for Southern Star and ABC Television. Most recent television credits include the Phryne Fisher Murder Mysteries for the ABC, Reef Doctors for Channel 9 and Mr & Mrs Murder for Fremantle Media.

In 2012 Elizabeth’s play Almost With You premiered at La Mama Theatre in Melbourne.
