Barbara &
The Camp Dogs

By Ursula Yovich & Alana Valentine Director Leticia Cáceres

  • Venue National tour
  • Dates 7 February – 8 June 2019

    Part road story, part family drama, part political cry from the heart, Barbara and the Camp Dogs is a deeply personal play and high-octane rock gig all in one, featuring the powerhouse duo of Ursula Yovich and Elaine Crombie, and a very tight band keeping the night alive.

    Barbara blew the roof off Belvoir last year, and the demand from around the country has risen to a clamour – it had to come back. So if you missed it last time, here’s your chance. And if you were lucky enough to see it, well it’s just as good the second, third or fourth time around (we speak from experience). It’s important, it’s bloody well done, and it’s fiercely entertaining.

    “This is a wonderfully stirring show, funny and moving. It enriches the heart.” The Australian

    Barbara and the Camp Dogs is a current nominee for the Nick Enright Prize for Playwriting as part of the 2019 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.
