'Birthrights is a bittersweet play about motherhood. When Helen discovers that she is unable to have children, her career-driven sister Claudia offers to be the surrogate mother in an act of supreme generosity. When, several years later, Claudia is unable to have her own child, she unintentionally begins to compete with her sister for their daughter's affection. Who will be left holding the baby?' (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
(p. 7-77)
Introduction, Kathy Lette , 2003 single work criticism (p. 81-82)
Soulmates, David Williamson , 2002 single work drama
'In Soulmates, David Williamson appplies his merciless humour to the literary world in a play about the slippery business of books, authors, their work and the readers who love them. When Katie Best, ex-pat Australian and Chick Lit Queen, receives an acerbic review from Danny, a Melbourne critic, she vows to take her revenge'. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
