The Stones is based on a true story of two boys charged with manslaughter after throwing rocks from a freeway overpass and killing a motorist. This internationally renowned play was created in 1996 and has been produced worldwide including at: the National Theatre (London); New Victory Theatre (New York); De Krakeling (Amsterdam); and in a cow shed in Horn Zaingrub, Austria. Burnt is set in the fictitious town of Gilpendry. Its story is borne out of the true stories of people from regional Australia struggling with prolonged drought, and in particular how the stresses and strains of continued drought impacts on families and young people. Taboo deals with date rape, internet dating, and the ripple effects of sexual assault. Commissioned by the Sydney Theatre Company.
