Chimerica | Sydney Theatre Company

A single man stopping a fleet of armoured vehicles is an inspiring image, one that has ignited the imagination of playwright Lucy Kirkwood. Not a masked avenger, yet he is still a mystery man, standing up against military might.

Mark Colvin’s Kidney | Belvoir

Mr Stink | CDP Kids
