    Written in Australian poetic vernacular, Boy out of the Country tells a story of land, family and belonging. A family property, worthless for generations, is suddenly zoned as part of a regional housing estate to accommodate an ever increasing urban sprawl. At this moment of shifting economies and loyalties, Hunter returns from a seven year absence. Finding his boyhood house boarded up and his mother in a retirement home, Hunter goes in search of answers. And he starts with his brother Gordon.

    Jamal and Bibi have a dream. To lead Australia to soccer glory in the next World Cup. But first they must face landmines, pirates, storms and assassins. Can Jamal and his family survive their incredible journey and get to Australia? Adapted for the stage by Patricia Cornelius from Morris Gleitzman's best-selling novel, Boy Overboard depicts a deeply human side of the 'asylum seekers' issue by following the journey of Jamal and Bibi from Afghanistan to Australia. Based on real life events, this is a moving play about young people overcoming the confusion of war, politics and the search for a safe haven.

    Title: BOYS
    Author: GRAHAM GORDON
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    A powerful picture of a family without moral, material, aesthetic or imaginative resource, each of them victims of a cycle of deprivation from which they can see relief only through money and physical power.

    The vicious murder of a woman is the culmination of the frustrated expression of anger by three men, who are, nonetheless, loved and cared for by their own women. This is a disturbing piece of writing which suggests that society is failing both the victims and perpetrators of crime.

    Later made into a film, the screenplay of The Boys - adapted from the play by Stephen Sewell - is also published by Currency Press.

    In 2002, a young man rehearses for his first armed robbery on a bookstore in Newcastle. On the other side of the world, Chechen rebels hold seige of the Moscow Theatre, demanding liberation. One is a local, small time theft and the other an international political crisis, but both are born of a similar futility and powerlessness to be heard. Moving back and forth between Moscow and Newcastle, these real events are the basis for this exploration on what drives such acts of terror and the impact they hold on the victims.

    Photographer-storyteller William Yang returns to a motherland he never knew. A stranger in his homeland, the Australian-born Chinese Yang takes his audiences from the streets of Beijing, where electronics superstores jostle with echoes of the Cultural Revolution and the Ming Dynasty, to the sacred mountain Huang Shan, a must-climb for every Chinese pilgrim-tourist; from a wild night in a Mongolian herdsman’s hut, to the apartments of ordinary Chinese, a few months after the Tiananmen Square incident. Part social documentary, part personal observation, China creates a meditative space, a journey of reflection on the meaning of culture and belonging for performer and audience alike.
