A Strategic Plan

Ross Mueller
 
"Failure is not on the whiteboard."

Feel like you’re drowning in paper work? Beaten by the impenetrable weight of office bureaucracy? Adrift in a sea of jargon? You’re not alone. 

Andrew, former rock muso and new CEO of youth music organisation, Staccato, was parachuted in to save the company from oblivion. Mission accomplished, he’s setting his sights on implementing a bold, new strategic plan.

But the Board has unanimously scrapped the plan and neglected to tell Andrew, leaving him adrift in a world of KPIs, performance reviews and a General Manager who refuses to return from his holiday in Thailand.

A Strategic Plan is Geelong-based playwright Ross Mueller’s contemporary satire about office life, arts funding and the perils of following your heart. Hilarious, pointed and painfully observant, it’s sure to cut close to the bone for anyone who’s ever tried to make a difference at work.

All Souls

Daniel Keene
 

All Souls, or the Day of the Dead, is when the dead return to the world of the living. On the eve of All Souls, a candle in the window allows the souls to come home to rest for a while. In the shadows of a crumbling urban landscape three couples pass under the gaze of Phillipa, an ageing homeless visionary.

All Souls evokes a vision of our dreams and nightmares. The writing is poetic, without compromise, always perceptive and compassionate. It is a truly remarkable work from one of Australia’s most gifted writers.

Almost with You

Elizabeth Coleman
 
It’s 2007. At forty-five, Lisa is fighting growing feelings for Tom that threaten to rob her of Dan, the person she’s always loved most in the world. She wants Tom badly, but she can’t (or won’t) tell him about Dan, and Tom finds himself in a competition that he can’t possibly understand. As for Dan, he’s a cheeky, exasperating mystery: a twenty-year-old who lives in Lisa’s house and heart and is steeped in the style and the vibrant music of the British post-punk era.

Dan brings Lisa a joy she can’t bear to explain, but with her chance for a life with Tom slipping away, she must finally find the courage to let Dan go. It’s the most terrifying—and liberating—decision she’s made since a fateful night 25 years ago.

Taking its title from The Church song, Almost With You is written with Elizabeth Coleman’s customary wit, warmth and elegance. With flashbacks to the seventies and eighties lovingly captured, Almost With You is a funny and deeply affecting look at love, loss and letting go.
