BEN ELLIS is a Gippsland-born playwright and columnist now based in London. Currency has published three of his plays:
Falling Petals which attracted furious debate in Australia—including fist-fights among audiences—for its depiction of an unsentimental and hypocritical rural community;
These People, concerning Australian responses to the stories of asylum seekers in detention centres in their deserts; and
Post Felicity, a black comedy which satirises the obsessions of baby boomers
which won both the Patrick White Play Award and the inaugural Malcolm Robertson Prize.
