Conversations With the Dead, by Richard J. Frankland
Imagine that you're a Koorie, that you're in your mid-twenties, that your job is to look into the lives of the dead and the process, policy and attitude that killed them.
 

Jack is employed by Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. In his role he listens to the stories of grieving families and re-creates the lives of those who have died. A powerful, savage play which takes you into the aching sorrow of deaths in custody.

A violent uprising is planned for Reconciliation Day in a future Australia. Will retribution or forgiveness prevail?

Casting Doubts, by Maryanne Sam
