Carnival Hour Plays

Two one-act plays, judged the best of our
2017 One-Act Play Writing Competition

In no particular order:

A Million Civilians – a black comedy by NSW playwright Mark Macrossan
Warning - includes coarse language
Dom is an architect seeking riches and success in a city of cranes and five star hotels –
a place that is at once a 21st century construct, a living symbol of obsession with material wealth,
 and a manifestation of something firmly implanted in the contemporary western psyche.
  Dom’s ticket is Alan, an expat who is offering to help, but at a price. Natalie, who is married to Dom,
has put her career back home on hold … for her husband, for their marriage, and for something else.
Meanwhile, as the relationship between the three gradually reveals itself
and then unfolds and unravels against this backdrop of latter-day extravagance,
a million people are taking flight in another part of the world, running for their lives. 

In High Places – a social comedy by Qld playwright Bruce Clark
On the day that the PM of Australia is about to hold a press conference to announce
the transferring of all remaining refugees from Dugong Creek Correction Centre to mainland China,
an office cleaner whose husband is still held in Dugong Creek confronts the PM demanding his release..
