In the 1950s, Australian authors Charmian Clift and George Johnston fled halfway across the world to the idyllic Greek island of Hydra, determined to carve out a bohemian living as artists. Award-winning Sue Smith weaves the original writings of two of Australia’s literary icons into a moving relationship drama. She conjures the passion and intensity of the near mythical ‘King and Queen of Hydra’ as they follow their dream, only to end up in a Greek tragedy of their own making.Barbara and the Camp Dogs by Ursula Yovich and Alana ValentineA Belvoir production in association with Vicki Gordon Music Productions1 - 25 MayA ROCK’N’ROLL FAMILY REUNION THAT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART AND FILL IT WITH SONGSHitting 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. 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. Now it’s set to charm the pants off Brisbane.City of Gold by Meyne WyattA Griffin Theatre Company co-production29 June - 20 JulyA BATTLE CRY FROM THE FRONT LINE OF AUSTRALIAN IDENTITYAll Breythe ever wanted was to be an actor, but this isn’t how he imagined his first big television gig – as a young Aboriginal man, being the face of a disastrous misfire of an advertisement that will get him roasted by his mob. Rising star Meyne Wyatt’s debut play is as riveting and unflinchingly honest as his stage presence. Urgent, wryly funny and politically incendiary, City of Gold is a call for change that will sound out for years to come.Fangirls - Book, music & lyrics by Yve BlakeA Belvoir and Brisbane Festival co-production in association with Australian Theatre for Young People7 September - 5 OctoberTHE NEW MUSICAL COMEDY ABOUT A POORLY UNDERSTOOD FORCE OF NATUREMeet Edna: She’s 14, chronically awkward, and everyone thinks she’s a serial liar. But none of this will matter when her REAL life starts. With Harry. There’s just one problem, Harry is in True Connection - the world’s biggest boyband. This world premiere by gifted young comedian, singer and playwright Yve Blake is stacked with insanely catchy numbers that will take you straight back to your first crush and make you feel ALL THE FEELS.Antigone - adapted by Merlynn Tong after Sophocles26 October - 16 NovemberTHE EPIC ARGUMENT RAGES ONA great city has been torn apart by a civil war between two brothers. In the aftermath, both lie dead – one hailed as a hero and lying in state, the other condemned as a traitor and dumped in a carrion pile. From the ashes of their conflict rises a dystopian state under a new leader – a career politician who rose to power by dint of her ruthlessness. In this lyrical adaptation of Sophocles’ timeless tragedy, award-winning Brisbane playwright Merlynn Tong adds an urgent modern twist, reuniting Christen O’Leary and Jessica Tovey after their triumphant pairing in Twelfth Night.Secure your 3 Play Ticket Package before shows go on general sale 29 April
