Engine

Janis Balodis
 
Every week somewhere in Australia news headlines proclaim yet another tragedy of young lives lost in a car wreck. Communities are shocked, politicians duck for cover and families are torn apart… the same story again and again. 

Set a month after the crash, Engine is the story of ‘Grumpop’ who lost a grandson and Natasha who lost a brother. Engine is a highly charged theatrical event about family, friends and cars and of fixing what’s broken and celebrating life.

Janis Balodis
 

Written over a period of ten years from 1985, The Ghosts Trilogy follows the lives of a group of young Latvians who emigrate to North Queensland in 1948. The chronicle of their struggles over forty-five years is paralleled by the narrative detailing the unsuccessful journeys made by German explorer Ludwig Leichhardt in Queensland in the years 1845-46.

Too Young For Ghosts

No Going Back 
The second play continues the intrigues of the group of young Latvians who emigrated to North Queensland in 1948.
