'Young, fearless and full of wanderlust Sara finds herself in London selling cleaning products in a call centre.
'Then she meets Tim, and her path takes an unexpected turn. For these two Aussies living it large in London everything is exhilarating, delightfully dangerous and full of possibility. When a body is discovered in the apartment upstairs the thrill of anonymity gives way to rising horror as Sara finds herself at the very edge of the person she once was.
'With originality and poetic wit, 'Whore" is an unflinching exploration of the price of freedom, ambition and the high-risk ride that is coming-of-age.'

'Who'll stop the rain? Andrew Bovell's award-winning When the Rain Stops Falling is powerful storytelling in which the voices of our past echo into our future.' (Publisher's blurb)
'Alana Valentine's play is a verbatim piece about the battle to overturn the decision to exclude the South Sydney Rabbitohs from the NRL. Based on extensive interviews with both public faces of the campaign including George Piggins, Andrew Denton and Nicholas Pappas, and grassroots supporters such as Mark Courtney, Barbara Selby and Marcia Seebacher, this is a story of passion and politics that goes beyond football.'
