‘Cameron says this, her first play, was written in one sitting, with minimal rewriting. This is hard to believe, as the script is so well balanced and cleverly paced, suggesting a long process of development and refinement. With a deft comic touch, Cameron captures a slice of small-scale human futility…there is barely a false note in the entire script.’
James Harper. Courier Mail 12/3/2000
‘This is a lovely piece of writing full of nuance and bereft of bludgeoning. Watch out for playwright Cameron in future years. If Valerie and Munro is typical of her work, then she’s destined for great things.’
Krissy K. Time Off. 2001
A musical play for young adults, co-written with Beverley Callow. Music by Mark Zadro.
With our current, unhealthy emphasis on physical ‘perfection’, fatal diseases such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia continue to prevail. ‘The Melon Meets Botticelli’ is an hilarious, yet moving exploration of this phenomenon, which raises some deadly serious questions.
The outback comes to the city, under the full moon, as four unforgettable characters converge to reconcile their tragic pasts with the riddle of the present. A comic tragedy exploring the curse of alcohol abuse in Australia in all its larrikin joy, chaos and ultimate regret.
A woman moves to an island to conquer her fear of drowning, but to cross the strait, she must place her life in the hands of the ferryman. With each trip the tide rises as the characters are pulled closer together, until memory, myth, past and present merge shockingly into one.
Set in a dystopian future of genetically modified food and mutant babies, one small green grocer dares to undermine the ‘big brother’ corporation that controls their every move.

A modern exploration of the Narcissus and Echo myth.
Trapped high in a penthouse suite on the Gold Coast, ex Aussie soapie star and now Hollywood golden boy, Nolan Lang, struggles to stay afloat in the whirlpool that his life has become. Surrounded by sycophants and security personnel, Nolan finally realises the only one who may be able to save him from himself, is the one person left in his life that he can trust; childhood sweetheart and oldest friend, Alicia Preston. But Alicia never wants to see him again.
‘My overall impression of The Flowering is that it is like a piece of intricately woven embroidery. Years of skilled crafting is required to compile and create the completed piece, which is the product of many hundreds of threads. The play displays elements of simplicity and minimalism in portraying demanding and complex episodes but does not lose any depth in doing so. The Flowering is a play that almost defies description as it breaks genre in its exploration of expression. Knowledge of the Demeter and Persephone myth provides an extra edge to your appreciation of the play, but it is by no means a must for comprehension. The Flowering does require undivided attention but if prepared, you will be richly rewarded as the story unfurls.’
