(“The Flats” received a commendation at the 2003 Philip Parsons Young Playwright Award)
Dark Comedy (monologues collection)

“The Flats” is about six people and one DJ who live in an inner city apartment block. It is about their nasty, creepy, dirty, juicy, slippery, fleshy, mouldy, tickly, prickly, ballsey, hyper, psycho, chicken-loving, letter-writing, no-friend-having, anger-festering, orgasm-mongering, death-smelling, nipple-tweaking, medicated, fabricated, penetrated, isolated, unabated little habits and thoughts … it is about those moments of horrible, screeching, clumsy, excruciating and beautiful humanity they experience.

“The Flats” is available for sale through the Australian Script Centre and Australian Plays Org:
