Who’s Afraid of the Working Class?
Five plays are intertwined in one in this story of fringe dwellers, living in an age of social, economic and moral deprivation. Mostly unemployed, and politically disengaged, they work at survival.
Adapted into the film,
- 1999 AWGIE Award - Best New Work & Best Stage Play
- 1999 Jill Blewitt Award
- 1999 Victorian Green Room Award
- 1999 QLD Premier’s Award - Drama
With intelligence, well-judged humour and the searching qualities of truly memorable theatre, the play peels away political propaganda and notions of correctness to present a candid, difficult, searing portrait of the poor and the maringalised. -
Features of Blown Youth by Raimondo Cortese
Cortese explores the milieu of young lives in the inner city today, with all its frustrations and demons, using dialogue that reflects the patterns and rhythms of everyday speech. His street-wise characters face a world of scarce and unsatisfying employment, drugs, loneliness, depression, sexual obsession, exploitation and hopelessness.
Raimondo Cortese’s sharp, sometimes shattering Features of Blown Youth may not be an overtly political play, but in its cumulation of detail and debris it manages to pack an almighty punch ... brilliant theatre.’ — Bryce Hallet,
Polly Blue by Belinda Bradley
A bathrobe, a table, a bed, a clothes line. Amongst the floral dresses and underpants hangs George. Dead.
is a peep show into suburbia, in which Belinda Bradley probes the apparent intimacy of a shared environment.
