Sharp Darts: Chamber Plays by 7-ON

16 May 2021

On Friday 4 June at Gleebooks Louise Gough and 7-ON Playwrights are launching 7-ON’s new book


Sharp Darts: Chamber Plays by 7-ON (Currency Press) is the latest collaboration from 7-ON Playwrights. With an Introduction by Lee Lewis, it’s a collection of 15 short plays that reflect our very different voices. They take us from a lonely caravan on the edge of the ocean, to the footy oval of our teenage tragedies. From a soulless suburban shopping mall, to a futuristic island with its own hybrid language to a boat on a river in the deep dark. Across a nostalgic backyard fence, inside the implosion of a dynasty … and more.

The scripts exploit the limitations of the short play form to its best advantage, honing language, action and visual imagery to their sharpest points. Written for professional production, they also hold plenty of appeal for drama students, community theatre companies, reading groups, auditioning actors—anyone who wants to experience myriad worlds between two covers.

More info and buy the book here or here or from your local bookshop.

7-ON is: Donna Abela, Vanessa Bates, Hilary Bell, Noëlle Janaczewska, Verity Laughton, Ned Manning and Catherine Zimdahl.
