    Contains six plays.

    Enuff by John Harding is a frightening and funny play about an Australian future where black patience has run out. A violent uprising is planned for Reconciliation Day – will retribution or forgiveness prevail?

    I Don't wanna Play House by Tammy Anderson is the moving story of her childhood. A truly remarkable account of the triumph of the human spirit.

    Belonging by Tracey Rigney recounts the taunts and temptations of a school girl, and her personal struggle to remain true to her culture, and herself.

    Casting Doubts by Maryanne Sam is a funny, and at times heart-wrenching, play about an actors' casting agency with more colour charts than a paint shop, and the problems that Indigenous actors face.

    Crowfire by Jadah Milroy is the story of a young, urban Indigenous Australian woman, and a man from a desert community lured into the city. The moving story of a search for identity and the need for reconciliation.

    Conservations with the Dead by Richard J Frankland is a poetic and savage play that takes you into the aching sorrow of deaths in custody.

    pg. 71-106
