CAMP
Seymour Centre and Siren Theatre Co presents
CAMP

15 Feb 2023 to 4 Mar 2023

Seymour Centre and Siren Theatre Co in association with Sydney WorldPride are proud to present the world premiere of CAMP, playing at Seymour Centre from 15th February to 4th March 2023.

Against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Australia is on the cusp of political change. 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’.

Written by rising-star Australian playwright, Elias Jamieson Brown (Green Park), and directed by Kate Gaul (The Trouble with Harry, The Moors, H.M.S Pinafore), CAMP captures the excitement and spirit of revolution present at the birth of Australia’s fierce gay rights movement. Moving, joyful, and powerfully told, CAMP chronicles the struggles, successes, and legacy of early Pride activists who risked family, careers, and imprisonment to achieve social reform in Australia, and importantly, dramatises the untold history of women inside Australia’s Pride movement.

Starring Adriano Cappelletta (Ensemble Theatre’s Death of a Salesman), Anni Finsterer (Bell Shakespeare’s Othello), Genevieve Mooy (Adelaide State Theatre Company’s The Appleton Ladies Potato Race), Jane Phegan (Ensemble Theatre’s Good People), Lou McInnes (Sport for Jove’s The Crucible Symposium), Sandie Eldridge (Sport for Jove’s All’s Well That Ends Well), and Tamara Natt (Queerstories), CAMPtells of corruption, love, and liberation, as past and present collide in a theatrical phantasmagoria.
