A Strategic Plan

Ross Mueller
 
"Failure is not on the whiteboard."

Feel like you’re drowning in paper work? Beaten by the impenetrable weight of office bureaucracy? Adrift in a sea of jargon? You’re not alone. 

Andrew, former rock muso and new CEO of youth music organisation, Staccato, was parachuted in to save the company from oblivion. Mission accomplished, he’s setting his sights on implementing a bold, new strategic plan.

But the Board has unanimously scrapped the plan and neglected to tell Andrew, leaving him adrift in a world of KPIs, performance reviews and a General Manager who refuses to return from his holiday in Thailand.

A Strategic Plan is Geelong-based playwright Ross Mueller’s contemporary satire about office life, arts funding and the perils of following your heart. Hilarious, pointed and painfully observant, it’s sure to cut close to the bone for anyone who’s ever tried to make a difference at work.

A Town Named War Boy

Ross Mueller
 
"We hit Cairo like a train!... Every dirty little alley, every dusty back room bar. The pyramids are marvellous, but I could spend the rest of my days quite happily in the arms of your temptation."

Inspired by The State Library of New South Wales' jaw-dropping collection of World War I diaries and letters, A Town Named War Boy explores both the events of war and the impact it has upon soldiers and their families. Written with insight, humour and sensitivity, Ross Mueller's moving play brings the ANZAC legend to life.

Concussion

Ross Mueller
 
Tragedy is an incident, comedy will be our landscape.

Somewhere in a busy city, a man wakes to discover he has forgotten his life. He has no memory of the past and no clear sense of the present.

He is concussed. Or so he is told by a doctor—who may also be his partner. Now there are flashes of something. Hunger, mourning, sexual appetite... Bob Dylan? But why isn’t he in hospital? And what of the voices, the Blackberry, the brothers? The hammer?

A comedy with attitude, Concussion explodes a simple conceit and scatters its achingly funny and filthy tales of the city like shrapnel.

Mueller is surely one of the most intelligent, formally adventurous and emotionally brave playwrights now writing in this country. - Theatre Notes
