Summary
This diverse collection of contemporary plays from all over Australia includes: Bitin Back by Vivienne Cleven, adapted from her novel, this funny and perceptive play explores stereotyping, identity and race relations in a Queensland country town; Black Medea by Wesley Enoch, this blends the cultures of Ancient Greek and indigenous storytelling to weave a bold and breathtaking commentary on contemporary Black experience; Rainbows End, by Jane Harrison, set in the 1950s, in northern Victorian. It creates a resonant snapshot of one particular Koori family to dramatise the struggle for decent housing, meaningful education, jobs and community acceptance; the acclaimed King Hit by Geoffrey Narkle and David Milroy, tells the remarkable life story of Geoffrey Narkle which strikes at the very heart of the Stolen Generation, exploring the impact on an individual and a culture when relationships are brutally broken; and Windmill Baby by David Milroy
