Belongings 2010 single work drama

'"Belongings" captures the spirit of the space, place, people and community of the writer's original home in regional Queensland. "Belongings" is a poetic three-hander play set on a remote Australian rural property, and also at the Hotel at the nearest small township. It's inspired by the land around Many Peaks and Kalpower, outside of Gladstone, combined with an old family property near Banana in the Callide Valley.

The story explores isolation, heritage, community, and the change that results from the death of a powerful patriarch and an 'old way'; the rising up of ghosts and secrets. How does a person find themselves again when all that has been seemingly 'known' and solid has shifted irrevocably? To what do we 'belong' to when so much has been stripped away?' (Source: )

2010-2011 finalist Queensland Premier's Drama Award
y separately published work icon Unspoken 2004 Strawberry Hills : Currency Press , 2006 Z1190223 2004 single work drama young adult

"Unspoken" is a 50 minute one-woman show about family, disability, love and loss, written and performed by Rebecca Clarke. When Clarke was a teenager her only brother was born severely handicapped and this play explores that unique relationship. Beautifully crafted and rich in poetic imagery, this honest and deeply poignant piece of theatre takes the audience on a heart warming journey inside a young woman's soul, mind and heart. "Unspoken" is a refreshingly honest coming of age tale that combines poetic language and music and film to express a brave heart's tender voice.
