Beyond Priscilla has become a play!  Thanks to the adaptation efforts of award-winning playwright Gavin Roach and director Lauren Hopley, the book has become a play.

Following its coming out performance in January 2016 as part of Melbourne’s  Midsumma Festival, the play will then look to head to its roots: regional, rural and remote Australia.  Contact NICHE if you’d like Beyond Priscilla to head your way:

In 2010, Daniel Witthaus spent 266 days driving around rural, regional and urban Australia challenging homophobia. Beyond Priscilla is a record of the Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’ National Tour.

In a 38 week road trip around Australia, Daniel Witthaus discovered what contemporary life is really like for LGBT people – life beyond the stereotypes, life ‘beyond Priscilla’. Daniel’s simple aim was to challenge and confront homophobia ‘one cuppa at a time’. In so doing he met a wide range of individuals, all with harrowing or uplifting stories to tell of ‘pride and prejudice’.

Join Daniel as he encounters foul-mouthed police officers, transgender treasures, a billionaire’s butler, gay jackaroos and straight lumberjacks looking to change.

Daniel has also published another book titled Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’: Challenging homophobia in Australian schools (2010).
