'I didn't like picking up wet towels and used condoms or handling sticky money, but from my very first night there I was intrigued by the workers: the girls who sat around the kitchen smoking and chatting into the wee hours, waiting impatiently for their next client'. This is the story of a 'resting' actress and former face of 'Playschool' who takes a job as a receptionist in a brothel. Over several months she becomes immersed in this forbidden world of high drama and unforgettable characters, surrounded by secrecy and dodgy deals. Along the way she learns how to handle the nervous first-time punter and how to organize the 'special needs' of certain celebrities, and when her 'Playschool' past is discovered she is instantly promoted to one of the family. Then, in this most unlikely of places, she finds herself falling in love ...Merridy Eastman has performed in numerous theatrical productions with companies like MTC, STC and Shakespeare in the Gardens.
She has had major roles in most current Australian soap operas playing everything from a cradle-snatching golf fanatic ('Neighbours') to a killer funeral director ('Blue Heelers') and spent five years being a presenter on 'Playschool'. In 1999, with acting employment scarce, Merridy took the job in the brothel, becoming a plentiful source of stories at dinner parties until her friends kept shouting 'You have to write this down!' ...So she did.
