Short Circuit

Vanessa Bates et al
Over three years, Australia's new writing theatre, Griffin Theatre Company, presented fourteen unique short plays across its mainstage seasons. Seen for one night only, The Fates, Seasons and The Seven Needs were three play-cycles provoked by the classical mythology of humanity's inescapable destiny, the seasonal patterns and Maslow's Pyramid of Human Needs. 

Now, this eclectic and fascinating collaboration of ten-minute plays by some of the country's most established and emerging playwrights becomes Short Circuit.

The Circuit

Kelly Lefever, Dot West, Mitch Torres & Beck Cole
In the outback, the law is never black and white.

Drew is a young Aboriginal lawyer fast-tracking his way from Perth to a policy job in Canberra via Broome. A stint as a public defender with the Kimberley Circuit Court offers him the street cred he needs in the Federal scene—plus a chance to ‘put something back’.

‘The Circuit’ turns out to be a tumultuous tour of the wildest parts of the far north, grappling with the often impossible contradictions between traditional and whitefella law. In the whirlwind of the travelling courtroom, cases are decided in minutes, with repercussions that go on for years. Drew has no idea what’s hit him.

Then there is the legacy of his own long-forgotten family history.

A compelling, funny and thoughtful drama series starring Aaron Pedersen, Kelton Pell, Tammy Clarkson, Marta Kaczmarek and Gary Sweet as the Magistrate, The Circuit screened on SBS TV in July 2007.
