#VAL – A Camp-Fire Kiki with Mother

Presented by: John O’Hara

It’s cabaret in its 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.

#VAL explores the very specific, layered and precious relationship that queer kids have with their mothers… women who often know their children are different before they do themselves. These women, warriors and living legends continue to walk alongside their babies on the winding quest and sometimes bumpy road to equality for all. They have stories to tell.

In an evening of unconditionally loving and at times, just plain awkward tales, John will sing (and possibly dance) his way over the rainbow, weaving in and out of experiences with his own mother, Val… who’s recent popularity has seen her claim her own hashtag. Set against the fantastically epic hits of the 80s, 90s and now, #VAL promises the ultimate mixtape of camp pop anthems, impossibly cool classics and an outrageous power ballad or two.

See you around the camp-fire… Everyone’s welcome.
