Child Of the Dark Sun

Synopsis:
a man marries a woman who turns out to be his mother. and he kills a stranger who turns out to be his father. Sound familiar? This is a new and modern re-telling of the classic story. Why retell it now? In the 20th and 21st Centuries, many individuals have been destroyed by the deception of the State, or sent from their real families by policies which gave birth to tragedy. It has been a time of people in flight from, or in search of, their true identity. In the third millennium, as we approach dazzling possibilities of surrogate and scientific parenthood, the play has a further resonance. Various Dramatists have told parts of the story , but this is the first time the entire extraordinary tale has been written

His Mother's Voice

Synopsis:
Contrary to a Chinese edict against western influence in music, a courageous woman secretly teaches her young son to play the piano in the home. In setting him on the path to fame as a leading pianist, neither she nor her son expected they would become embroiled in a dangerous confrontation between Shanghai and Canberra. From the birth of China's Cultural Revolution to the eve of the Tiananmen Square protests, Justin Fleming's dazzling new play weighs the price of defiance in the face of brutality. His Mother's Voice is a love story: the love between two young people from different worlds; the love that drives a mother to great sacrifice; and the love of a young man for his country.

Hypocrite, The

Synopsis:
here's no better racket than the religion racket and no one knows that racket like Tartuffe. Almost everyone can see what a sanctimonious hypocrite he is, but that doesn't matter. He only needs a couple of rich and influential suckers who will fall for his holier-than-thou routine and, in old Madame Pernelle and her foolish son Orgon, he's found them. String them along for long enough and they'll give him anything he wants: money, power, even the hand of Orgon's daughter in marriage.

School for Wives, The

Synopsis:
This is a new translation by Justin Fleming of Moliere's The School for Wives, first staged in Paris in 1662. Arnolde, a wealthy business man, reveals that he confined a young girl, Agnes, in a convent as a child so that some day she may be his innocent, ignorant and therefore dutiful wife. Now that Agnes is of marrying age, Arnolde hides her in a house and plans their wedding. Horace, the handsome son of Arnolde's friend, catches a glimpse of Agnes, and falls in love with her. By boldly gaining access to the house, he learns from Agnes how her master keeps her a prisoner from the world. Incensed at Horace's secret advances, Arnolde forbids Agnes from seeing Horace and sends for a lawyer to prepare the marriage contract. But in an hilarious sequence of events, Fate reveals that it has a very different plan in mind.
