This Old Man Comes Rolling Home 
A play centred on family life in working-class Redfern in the 1950s which captures the colour, spirit and political character of the inner-city suburb. Hewett who lived in Redfern during the Cold War, wrote that her aim was 'to write of a self-contained world ... with its own language, its own folklore, its own values, its own ethos, to write of it with both realism and poetry'.

   Also published in  Plays of the 60s Volume 2

Mrs Porter and the Angel
An exploration of the frustrations of domesticity and marriage in the lives of academic women.

The Tatty Hallow Story
