The Campaign in Process

In 1988 more than 100 individuals were arrested in Hobart, Tasmania. These arrests would lead to the landmark decriminalisation of homosexuality in Tasmania. Accompanying the Victorian premiere of Campion Decent's play, The Campaign, Nathan Smith depicts the artistic process of rehearsing the theatrical work as well as Smith's own responses to the story, themes and people that pioneered the Tasmanian gay law reform campaigns.
