Part of Sprint Festival 2019, CPT’s annual festival of adventurous new performance, running Tuesday 5 – Sunday 24 March.
A surreal and anarchic two-woman comedy packed with glitter, friendship and desperation. Camp Be Yourself is an explosive look at growing up, set in the immersive world of an American summer camp that’s filled with music, meta theatre gags and a lot of enthusiasm. Camp counsellors Emily and Betsy are here to help you figure out the chaos of “adulthood” whilst trying their darndest not to lose their campers, their friendship, or their minds… Welcome to Camp Be Yourself! For those of you that can’t be yourself in real life, you Camp Be Yourself here.
This hilarious debut production is written and performed by Emilia Stawicki and Betty Jane Walsh, exploring the mental unrest of becoming an “adult” and pretending to know what you’re doing, when you most definitely do not. This is adulthood, no one is going to take your trash out for you.
