The plays are:

'LIttle Angels'   by Yvette Wall from Floreat in W.A Director is Jacqui Mata Lucre. 'Little Angels' is set in the 60's in a Catholic home for un-married mother.  At turns sad and shocking, the play reflects the different attitudes of the nuns and of the so-called 'care' they received/endured during this pivotal time in their lives.

He pulls out all stops to keep her in her marriage and his son on track for his – with hilarious results. But is the son her lover???

'Black Matter' is by Bruce Olive from Buderim, Queensland and John McMahon, also from Buderim, is directing.
