The four plays contained in this collection are the result of a unique collaboration between Griffith University's Applied Theatre Department, Playlab Press and four prominent playwrights, whose brief was simple - the plays could be no longer than 20 minutes and the cast, no fewer than six. Subject matter, up to the playwright. The end result is four stunning theatrical experiments:
A Contemporary Hymn by Linda Hassall
Take a fierce metaphorical journey into the disturbing underbelly of the nightclub scene. Angels of the Street and Dark travel to and from the soul-crushing Wasteland, as apocalyptic realisations compound.
Beetle-Eyed by Helen Howard
Workers are turning into beetles, invisible bugs are plaguing humans and men are pretending to be blind. Beetle-Eyed explores the obscurities of love in a world where absurdity prevails.
The Gate Crasher by Stephen Carleton
When former school friends attend a reunion after their classmate is killed in biking accident, it’s clear something’s not right about the classmate in the corner they can’t seem to rememberâ€¦
Never 4 Ever by Daniel Evans
Welcome to the bizarre world of a bunch of night-shift workers at Coles. Fantasy and reality are lived in equal measure as the supermarket melds into the escapist realms of Outer Space and Neverland. Never 4 Ever is an exuberant and hilarious journey through time and space, that won’t easily be forgotten.
