More Female Parts comprises three mono-dramas:
Can’t Sleep, Can’t Sleep – Julie is caught between conflicting needs, none of them her own. Recently divorced and reduced in finances, she’s having to deal with Centrelink hassles, no-hope job interviews, her ageing mother, and extensive grandchild duties. She also has the feeling she’s losing her mind - and now she’s lost her keys.
Penthouse Woman 2044 – Veronica lives in luxury on the 99th floor with a controlling robot-computer and cameras watching her every move. Obsessed with body-image, she appears to have all she needs but her husband is a tyrant and she’s a prisoner in her own home. Can she, will she, escape?
Hip Op – Emily is in an anaesthetised haze after a hip operation. She’s a single-minded highly qualified career woman who’s been unable to push through to CEO status. She hallucinates a bizarre fairy-tale-nightmare where her work and family issues come to a head. Success seems imminent but her plans are thwarted by a Garden Gnome called Graeme.
