Presented by Bradley & Williams in association with DaPoPo Theatre as part of Eastern Front Theatre’s 2017 STAGES Festival.
The Nazis hated them because they were gay… but that’s what saved them.
KAMP is a two-act musical that tells the story of a group of homosexual men, interred in a Nazi concentration camp, who use their artistic talents to secretly produce their own musical revue; a project that would give them hope to survive, hold on to their identities, and maintain their humanity. KAMP is based on historical truth.
This reading is presented in a unique way.
The play receives a first reading in week one of the STAGES Theatre Festival, then a second reading in week two after work has been done.
‘KAMP’ (by Jamie Bradley & Garry Williams ) will be the second play script to receive this treatment. We initiated this process in 2016 and it proved successful and very useful to the writer.
Session 1 will feature a staged-reading of this new work in-development followed by a moderated feedback session with the audience. Over the course of ten days, the playwrights will rework the piece (heeding OR ignoring the audience’s comments!) for a reading to take place the following week.
