ROAR IN ON A MOTORBIKE, PULL UP A SEAT AT THE BAR AND SETTLE IN FOR UNFORGETTABLE POWER BALLADS.

Barbara fronts a pub rock band, captivating crowds with cutting wit, diabolical rage and unrepentant sexuality. She may be fun, she may be dangerous, and she may be speeding headlong towards a dead end.

Rene, her ‘sister’, hears that Mum is sick. So, they set out on a wrenching road trip to reconnect with their disconnected family. The roar of motorbikes and growling dialogue are intercut with guitar-driven arias.

Malthouse Theatre’s Merlyn stage is made over into a sticky-carpet band venue—a transformation that will see some lucky audience members seated up-close and personal with Barbara and the band. There, Ursula Yovich (Heart is a Wasteland) and Elaine Crombie (Blaque Showgirls) are ready to rock out again after a sell-out season in Sydney. Their powerful vocals are accompanied, live, by an all-female three-piece outfit.

So, take a stool at the bar and amp up for a noisy night with Barbara and the Camp Dogs.
