Jack can’t dress for shit. Mini’s dad says gay is a phase. Daniel’s friends think he’s run out of men in Melbourne. And Constable Peter swears he’s a lesbian.

Come meet Ls, Gs, Bs, Ts and Is from every nook and cranny of the land we call home, as we burst out of the book and bring Beyond Priscilla to the stage.

Experience the epic 266-day journey of one man, one openly gay truck, and one cuppa at a time to challenge the issue that “isn’t even an issue anymore” - homophobia.

Beyond Priscilla: The Play sees Daniel Witthaus' acclaimed book take to the stage, bringing to life the LGBTI stories of regional and rural Australia. This energetic adaptation offers audiences a unique insight into how homophobia has manifested across our social landscape, some twenty years after Priscilla hit the silver screens.
