    In Zachary's class, everyone is interesting-except Zachary. Zachary Briddling, is awfully middling. His hair sits quite fine. His teeth are aligned. His lines are expected, and his specs nonexistent. So Zachary grumbles (as Zachary does), to which his mum replies: 'But that is just normal for here'. And she reminds him of all the other places-filled with giants, and miniatures, and hairy things, and flying things-places where Zachary would not be middling at all. Fed up with feeling average, Zachary journeys into a surreal and entrancing world to discover what makes him special.

    Gwen is 90. She woke up this morning to discover that purgatory is sitting alone in a new house in a new subdivision on the edge of town, trying to work out if the remote in her hand operates the air-con or the fan-forced oven. But then her grandson turns up, and Father Ezekiel, a priest from Nigeria, arrives to bless the house, and the beginning of the end starts to look up. When more of Gwen’s kids arrive, each with their own motives and demons, this family of ordinary souls must battle to keep faith, both with Gwen and with each other.

    There's a climate of fear in friendly Goulbourn and Shane is forced from his family, and flees to Kings Cross. A lost boy in a loopy neighbourhood, Shane is unsure of his sexuality, more unsure of how to find intimacy and completely thrown by having to choose between laundry liquid and powder. Strangers in Between is a warm, insightful and funny coming-of-age story with endearing characters and very well-observed dialogue from one of Australia's most talented emerging playwrights.

    Timothy Conigrave's classic memoir, Holding the Man is one of Australia's Favourite 100 Books (2003 Australian Society of Authors 40th Anniversary list), won the United Nations Human Rights Award for Non Fiction in 1995, and has been published in several languages. Holding the Man is breathtakingly honest, achingly funny and a completely heart-wrenching account of a fifteen year relationship that weathered disapproval, separation, temptation and, ultimately, death. It's a story, and a celebration, that speaks across generations, sexual preference and cultures.

    From the creator of Children of the Black Skirt, comes a contemporary tale of Hansel and Gretel. This engrossing new work explores the impact of poverty and violence on children, families and community. The work is exquisitely poetic and utilises Brechtian techniques, including multiple role-playing, episodic narrative, direct address and rhyming word to tell a powerful story of three kids left in a car. Two physical actors, a simple set and filmic music score conjure up the suburban landscape in this tale of survival and solidarity against the odds.
