    Asylum seekers and refugees are at the vanguard of some of today's most pressing international challenges, their perilous journeys mapping the borderlines of a world in which the right to enter and remain in safe and secure living spaces is zealously guarded. This timely collection is the first of its kind, bringing together a selection of contemporary plays on the issue of asylum written by Australians and by refugees. The collection includes a 'mock verbatim' drama produced in response to the 2001 'Children Overboard' scandal; an impassioned autobiographical account of a long journey from Iraq to Australia; a solo piece about a hunger strike in a detention centre; and a sharp political satire set in an Australian suburban living room.
