The year is 1962. Fading film star Bridgette Van Kamp has been a total recluse since the end of the Second World War, relying on the good will of her only daughter, Cassidy, to maintain contact with the outside world.
But Cassidy is coming into her own: she’s seventeen and counting, the Spring Fling is coming up and she’s found a boy she’d like to date… that is, if she can quell her sudden and unexplainable bloodlust. And what of the dark secret that lies underneath her Mother’s refusal to leave the house?
Third Reich Mommie is a high camp thriller in the melodramatic tradition of 60s and 70s “psychobiddy” genre; Charles Busch on a day trip to the Grindhouse.
Whatever happened to Baby Jane? She died in jail. Now meet Cassidy and Bridgette.
“Third Reich Mommie is a hugely entertaining play” – Vera Poh, TO DAD, WITH LOVE
“…it’s performed with tasteless glee. Glitter! Braaiiinnns! What more could you want?” – Cameron Woodhead, THE AGE (on previous hit, RIGOR MORTIS)
