A camp-fire kiki with mother.

It’s cabaret in it’s truest form; big, bold and a little bit loose! Tour de force performer and self proclaimed national treasure ‘Australia’s John O’Hara (School of Rock, Wicked, Priscilla – Queen of the Desert) returns in his brand new cabaret; #VAL. A fabulously honest and hilariously heartbreaking homage to the mothers of our queer community, #VAL is a true celebration of joy, love and acceptance that will definitely leave a speck of glitter in your undies.

Exploring the very specific, layered and precious relationship that queer kids have with their mums, #VAL shines a light on women who often know their children are different before they do themselves. These legendary rainbow warriors continue to walk along side their children on the winding quest and sometimes bumpy road to equality for all. They have stories to tell.

As part of Midsumma Festival.
