Theatre Works proudly presents the premiere season of

Love/Chamberlain
by Bridget Mackey

“I’ve got a feeling I need your help.”

Courtney Love and Lindy Chamberlain cross paths on a remote highway. Each vilified within their own time, these two legendary women encounter each other in the ferment of rumour following Kurt Cobain’s death, Lindy still dwelling on her grief caused by the disappearance of baby Azaria. Both have been unjustly accused of murder.

A play about grief, judgment and the demonisation of women, Love/Chamberlain tears apart the fabric of the age old question; can any woman ever go unscrutinised for her behaviour in the public eye?

Why is it easier for people to believe a fanciful lie over the complicated truth of real experience?

Running from the 10th to the 20th of October as a part of Theatre Works Chapter Three program, Love/Chamberlain is a compelling new work by writer Bridget Mackey about the instability and unknowability of the future, and how history impacts our current day lives. Directed by Cathy Hunt and featuring a highly respected team of cast and creatives this premiere work unpacks the collective imagination of a 1980’s Australia, providing a unique perspective on our past and present.

Please note: this is a creative work and does not represent the thoughts, feelings, words or actions of Lindy Chamberlain or Courtney Love.
