CAMP

15 Feb - 4 Mar 2023

In 1972, the body of a murdered lecturer floats in the River Torrens, a young woman escapes a lobotomy to ‘cure’ her sexuality, and a single mum struggles to find her place in a society that brands her as ‘abnormal’.

CAMP, a new play by Elias Jamieson Brown (Green Park), welcomes you to the punk lands of the 1970s, and the birth of Australia's fierce gay rights movement.

Directed by Kate Gaul, CAMP chronicles the struggles, successes, and legacy of early Pride activists who risked family, careers, and imprisonment to achieve social change in Australia.

It is a story of murder, corruption, love, and liberation, set across five decades of glorious queer history and inspired by true stories from those who were there.

This event is generously supported by the NSW Government.
