Barbara and the Camp Dogs – Queensland Theatre
1 May - 25 May
Barbara and the Camp Dogs
By Ursula Yovich* and Alana Valentine
1 to 25 May 2019 at the Bille Brown Theatre
Part madcap buddy comedy, part electrifying rock gig, and part clarion call against the taint of inequality, this vibrant play with songs sold out its original season at Sydney’s Belvoir, and now it’s set to charm the pants off Brisbane! A rock’n’roll family reunion that will break your heart and fill it with song, it is directed by Leticia Cáceres.
The Cast includes: Troy Brady (Black Arm Band), Elaine Crombie (Top of the Lake, An Octoroon), Ursula Yovich (Mother Courage and Her Children, Australia) with musicians Sorsha Aluquerque (Guitar), Jessica Dunn (Musical Director and Bass Guitar), Michelle Vincent (Drums).
The Story: Hitting the big time is tough when the only booking your kick-ass band can score is a pub gig. But the boisterous, bolshie Barbara and her rockers the Camp Dogs are in it for the long haul. When a family tragedy beckons, Barbara and her sister (and fellow muso) René set off on a long and winding motorbike adventure from Sydney, through Darwin, and finally to Katherine – where the bickering pair come face to face with some home truths.
*Ursula Yovich was recently named as one of the Top 21 most iconic Women of Australian Stage, Page & Screen by The Age.
A Belvoir production in association with Vicki Gordon Music Productions.
