Close 2013 single work drama mystery 'The new girl at school has disappeared. What happened to her and who is to blame? Six teenagers attempt to unravel the mystery, piecing together fragments of the puzzle and trying to get closer to the truth.

Close is a contemporary mystery from one of the country's most original new voices, dealing with the challenges of loss, guilt and being an outsider. A dark, funny and unnerving new drama not to be missed.' (Source: )
2011 shortlisted Patrick White Playwrights' Award
2010 shortlisted Griffin Award for New Australian Playwriting
Small and Tired 2013 single work drama

'Orestes has come back to bury his father. He has been away a long time. His mother is hardened, his sister is strangely ill. He will see them, he will bury his father, and then, in all likelihood, he will drift away again. But in a bar one night, slightly drunk, he meets a gentle soul called Pylades...

'Kit Brookman's play springs from the myth of Orestes and the House of Atreus, but Brookman's leap of imagination has been to fully dissolve the myth into the contemporary world.' (Source: )
