Content

Five new short plays by Melissa Bubnic, Michele Lee, Nakkiah Lui, Hannie Rayson and Debra Thomas.

Five writers, five actors, one theme

Power Plays is a theatrical tasting menu of some of Australia’s finest writers. Their mission: to each write a satirical 20-minute play on the theme of power. The result: 100 minutes of hilarious theatre.

(My play is called Off Centre and is about a hospitality worker owing Centrelink $35k).
