    A fast-moving, wisecracking commentary on contemporary urban mores and morals, and the rivalries and passions to be encountered on the road to success. Colin, a screenwriter, and his wife Kate, a publisher, move to the Emerald City, where fame and fortune are there for the taking, but surprises are in store for them both.Sharp-edged, staritical and accusatory, Emerald City lays into the materialism of the 1980s with a razor wit. Within four months of its premiere, five separate productions had opened around Australia.

    Kimberly is a character like no other. She’s powerful, wicked, in control—but she has no voice. So she sets out to find it, leaving a trail of car crashes and crying people in her wake. Then she meets Miles. And she’ll do anything he says.

    From engagement parties to team-building weekends to improv comedy, The Feather in the Web is an unpredictable take on infatuation and self-discovery. Skewering our obsession with couples and careers, it asks just how much we’re willing to give (and lose) for love.

    Nick Coyle, (Hammerhead (is dead)) has written a playful, startling and surprisingly hopeful coming-of-age story. It’s part picaresque, part fable—a journey from silence to a full-throated ROAR.

    The First Garden tells the story of Olive Pink—a trailblazing Aboriginal land rights activist and environmentalist.

    Ridiculed by her peers and shunned by the Alice Springs community for espousing ideals that were considered to be outlandish she was viewed as a public nuisance, to be barely tolerated. However, due to her vigor and vision the Olive Pink Botanical Garden was established in Alice Springs.

    The First Garden also touches on key narratives in modern Australian identity, seamlessly incorporating Aboriginal rights, environmentalism, the Gallipoli legend and feminism into its gentle rhythmic tone.

    This reflects a maturation of our society, where we are prepared not only to acknowledge but also to reconcile.

    Patrick Sandford's acclaimed dramatisation of Mary Shelley's celebrated novel FRANKENSTEIN, a classic work of gothic fiction in the English canon.

    Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant and ambitious young student, discovers the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead. But elation at his triumph is replaced by horror when he sees his monstrous creation. Abandoned by the one who made him, Frankenstein's Creature is left to a world that fears and rejects him, and soon his innocence turns to misery - and a murderous desire for revenge...

    Every word in Patrick Sandford's 'vigorous adaptation' (The Times) is lifted directly from Mary Shelley's classic gothic novel. One of the greatest horror stories of all time, and one that still grips readers today almost two hundred years after its first publication.

    Patrick Sandford's adaptation of Frankenstein was first performed at Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, in 2004.

    All the more successful for staying faithful to the dark spirit of the original book, this adaptation includes notes on the first production and can be performed with a minimum of set and props, making it well suited for staging by schools and amateur theatre groups, as well as by professional companies.

When Martin saves Ed’s life, everyone knows the debt can never be properly repaid. But Ed is rich and generous, and Martin and Chloë have a need so great it seems divine providence that the two couples should have found each other.

Wrapped in Joanna Murray-Smith’s glinting dialogue, The Gift opens to reveal another witty examination of our modern moral confusions.
