    This collection includes three previously unpublished works: Jonah, Top End, and Lost Weekend. They are published together with his best-known play, The Floating World.

    Romeril’s writing conveys an immediacy of the times that stems from his beginnings as an agitprop writer, but he focuses on everyday lives. He sees the larger world reflected in these lives, using domestic detail and personal relationships to illuminate the wider society. The plays in Damage explore the consequences of the stresses and strains of the twentieth century, in the body politic and also on the individual.

    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.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    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).
