Annabel Crabb celebrates her 50th birthday this year – so she’s marking this special milestone with her one-woman show: 50 Odd Years of Crabb.

“I specialize in making life complicated, so in my 50th year I’m going to get on stage and potentially make a massive goose of myself. And yes, I’m packing it, in case you were wondering.”

50 Odd Years Of Crabb is a fast-paced listing of 50 things Annabel has learned over 50 years of life, from a farm upbringing (#8: Don’t Get A Rabbit) to kitchen tips (#28: A Life Changing Way To Store Spices) to life around politics (#23: When Dressing For Lunch At Clive Palmer’s House, Choose Something Non-Flammable) all the way through to ageing and dealing with grief.

The lessons range from broad (#13: Life’s Too Short To Work For Dickheads) to extremely specific (#22: If You’re Doing An Event With Hillary Clinton, Do Not Drink The Glass Of Hot Water Covered With A Fancy Doily That Is Placed Carefully Backstage. It Is For Hillary Clinton And Not For You.)

“Turning 50 is a real opportunity for reflection, growth and learning,” says Crabb. “And if I have to go through that, there’s absolutely no reason paying customers shouldn’t be subjected to it as well.”

In a half-century of life, Annabel Crabb has been a lot of things: Farm hand, cookbook author, political correspondent, podcaster, mother, defendant, intruder in political kitchens.
