Playing Rock Hudson is a new play by Cameron Lukey, produced by Michele Bauer.One of America's most popular movie stars throughout the fifties and sixties, Rock Hudson was diagnosed with AIDS in 1984, and died a year later. In 1988, his former lover Marc Christian sued his estate and personal secretary for reckless endangerment. The chief question for the jury: was Christian the love of Hudson's life and a victim of malice, or was he a blackmailing hustler out to play Rock Hudson for all he was worth?Part courtroom drama, part biography, Playing Rock Hudson explores the building and tearing down of a Hollywood icon, and a legacy that changed the world’s perception of AIDS.Benefit performance at 3pm on Saturday 30 November for Victorian AIDS Council – Q&A session with cast included.
