Plaza Suite by Neil SimonDirector Adrian Smith
The first act, Visitor From Mamaroneck, introduces the audience to not-so-blissfully wedded couple Sam and Karen Nash, who are revisiting their honeymoon suite in an attempt by Karen to bring the love back into their marriage. Her plan backfires and the two become embroiled in a heated argument about whether or not Sam is having an affair with his secretary.
The second act, Visitor from Hollywood, involves a meeting between movie producer Jesse Kiplinger and his old flame, suburban housewife Muriel Tate. Muriel - aware of his reputation as a smooth-talking ladies' man - has come for nothing more than a chat between old friends, promising herself she will not stay too long.
The third act, Visitor from Forest Hills, revolves around married couple Roy and Norma Hubley on their daughter Mimsey's wedding day. In a rush of nervousness, Mimsey has locked herself in the suite's bathroom and refuses to leave. This is the most comic of the acts, filled with increasingly outrageous slapstick moments depicting her parents' frantic attempts to cajole her into attending her wedding while the gathered guests await the trio's arrival downstairs.

Inconceivable – a drama by Queensland playwright Hugh O’BrienSynopsis:
Investigative Journalist for the online newspaper QNEWS, Caitlin Cole, discovers that the birth rate in a low socio-economic community in south-east Queensland has mysteriously plummeted over the last three years. Teenage pregnancies at the local high school have gone from 14 to zero while there have been precious few planned pregnancies. At first the cause is thought to be a fungicide used by nearby grape growers. But as Caitlin overcomes the scepticism of her editor and digs deeper, she uncovers a far more sinister reason for the low birth rate.
Seamless – a drama/comedy by Queensland playwright Bruce Clark
John “Johnno” McCormick lives alone on his family property “Silver Springs” on the Darling Downs in Queensland. He has been a career farmer, and while the farm is now in decline, he keeps making an effort for his own sake. His wife has passed away some years previously. He has had to shoot the last property dog. His only child, a son, has been away studying at university since just before his mother’s death and keeps the place at arm’s length due to dealing with that tragedy. The GasUp Power Company has been anxious to sign up locals for coal seam gas rights. Johnno is philosophically opposed, but sees a possibility to keep his land, and has signed up. When his son James, now a newly graduated lawyer, returns to visit with his girlfriend Ingrid, he is appalled that his father has done this, but can’t put up too much of a protest, as he has only returned to say goodbye, needing to announce plans for his and Ingrid’s future, plans that don’t include the farm
