Barbara + the Camp Dogs
A rock’n’roll family reunion breaks hearts and fills them with songs. Hitting the big time is tough when the only booking a 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 – during which the bickering pair come face to face with some home truths. Part madcap buddy comedy, part electrifying rock gig, and part clarion call against the taint of inequality, this effervescent play with songs sold out its original season at Sydney’s Belvoir Theatre. Presented by Queensland Theatre and directed by Leticia Cáceres, this theatrical rock musical stars Ursula Yovich as Barbara and Elaine Crombie as René. Get ready for Barbara and the Camp Dogs to charm the pants off Brisbane.
