Courtney Love and Lindy Chamberlain cross paths on the Federal Highway at midnight, on their way to consult an oracle.
A series of impossible encounters unfold.
Love/Chamberlain is a hyper-real fantasy portrayal of Courtney Love and Lindy Chamberlain.
These time-travelling apparitions meet each other after the disappearance of baby Azaria and in the ferment of rumour following Kurt Cobain’s death.
Both women are unjustly accused of murder: Chamberlain in a law-court and Love in the seedy territory of conspiracy theorists and documentary movie-makers.
This performance lurches into a dream-like, eerily familiar, turned inside-out terrain to plumb our underlying collective uneasiness.
Please note: This play is a creative work and it does not represent the literal thoughts, feelings, words or actions of the real Lindy Chamberlain or Courtney Love
