    Australia’s most well-known playwright, David Williamson, returns with four new plays—three comedies that demonstrate his continued skill at tapping into the zeitgeist, alongside a sweeping historical drama.

    In Nearer the Gods, Williamson brilliantly recreates Sir Isaac Newton’s battle with the Royal Society to prove his astonishing universal theory of gravity. In Sorting Out Rachel Williamson steps onto fertile ground with a social comedy about legacy, greed, entitlement and making good on past relationships. In The Big Time best friends are put to the test in a satirical comedy set in the celebrity world of TV, film and theatre. In Odd Man Out a couple navigate the emotional terrain of a new relationship, which turns out to be less typical than either of them expect.

    ‘A singing spy, a hawker’s lie… How do you reconcile a family history littered with secrets’ Deceptive Threads tells the extraordinary true stories of David Joseph’s grandfathers—one a Tivoli singer turned ASIO spymaster who vetted ‘unwanted’ arrivals, the other an early Lebanese immigrant who had to lie about his birthplace to gain Australian naturalisation. In this award winning solo show, Joseph explores race, belonging, history, and national identity to theatrically illuminate the personal in the political. Deftly untangling the threads linking his family’s connection to Australia’s racist past and its present dilemma over asylum seekers, he explores the nexus between the government control of immigration and the ‘unwelcome’ immigrant.

    Set in Wollongong during the economic rationalism of the 1980s, Diving for Pearls remains startlingly relevant–the political decisions of that time planted the seeds of divide we continue to witness between those with opportunity, and those without.

    With the town she grew up in changing all around her, Barbara is determined to change with it. Dreaming of a way out, she sets her sights on landing a job at one of the new resorts popping up all over town. Meanwhile, her partner Den is having change forced upon him. The steelworks he’s worked at his whole life has been sold and Den must reinvent himself to survive. The arrival of Barbara’s daughter, Verge, just might be the thing that tips Barbara and Den over the edge.

    Forty years ago, a young playwright muscled his way onto the scene with a clutch of time-defining plays, including Don's Party. With this sequel, David Williamson celebrates four decades of telling the tribe their story. It's 21 August 2010, the night of yet another federal election and, of course, yet another election night party at Don's place. Over the decades, as he and his friends watched governments come and go, they have also closely followed the incoming results from each other's lives: the tallies of luck and misfortune, the unexpected swings for and against.

    Since its first burst on the Australian stage in 1971, Don's Party has become widely recognised as one of David Williamson's finest comedies. Set during an election night party, Don's guests pursue the rituals of courtship and sexual competitiveness as a means of coping with the insecurities of their own empty lives. Williamson's brilliant satire examines a society on the threshold of emerging from a generation of comfortable, conservative political and social values (2 acts, 6 men, 5 women).

    Tarantino meets Deadwood in this full-throttle drama of our colonial past, written by the indomitable Leah Purcell

    Henry Lawson’s story of the Drover’s Wife pits the stoic silhouette of a woman against the unforgiving Australian landscape, staring down a serpent – it’s our frontier myth captured in a few pages. In Leah’s new play the old story gets a very fresh rewrite. Once again the Drover’s Wife is confronted by a threat in her yard in Australia’s high country, but now it’s a man. He’s bleeding, he’s got secrets, and he’s black. She knows there’s a fugitive wanted for killing whites, and the district is thick with troopers, but something’s holding the Drover’s Wife back from turning this fella in…

    A taut thriller of our pioneering past, The Drover’s Wife is full of fury, power and has a black sting to the tail, reaching from our nation’s infancy into our complicated present.
