Third Reich Mommie

In the camp tradition of the late sixties “psychobiddy” genre, Third Reich Mommie is Charles Busch on a day trip to the Grindhouse. Faded film star Bridgette Van Kamp has been a recluse since the second world war ended, relying on the good will and obedience of her daughter Cassidy to get by. But Cassidy’s coming into her own: she’s 17 and counting, with the inexplicable bloodlust to prove it. Who is Cassidy’s real father? And what is the dark secret that lies beneath her mother’s refusal to leave the house?

Featuring some of Melbourne’s finest queer theatre makers, Third Reich Mommie aims to titillate and terrify. Whatever happened to Baby Jane? She died in jail. Now meet Cassidy and Bridgette.
