TAKAHASHI AND OTHER FALLING SECRETS
by Sandra Thibodeaux and Shellie Morris (NT)
Darwin, 1941. A town collapses under the pressure of global conflict.
Mothers and daughters, sisters, friends and entire cultures are torn apart

year old American actor meets Maggie Moore, Irish-Australian actor and

LOVE EQUALS by Craig Christie and Kristin Keam (VIC)
Four brilliant women drawn from history come together to discuss the
question 'Is it possible to use mathematics to predict life?' - whilst
giving insight into their own extraordinary stories.
Each of the above NEW works were
presented as a 20 minute 'scene/song' vignette. All writers were
directly involved in the development and presentation of their work.
