These plays have worked successfully in New Zealand and overseas with small theatre companies, tertiary and secondary students. Short plays are a passion for Angie Farrow: "I enjoy the fun of trying to say a lot with very little, pressing something huge into a small container. A short play is like a highly charged battery: full of locked-in energy that can fuel an intensity of drama."
"Brilliantly clever, witty and sharp -- these works contain a multitude of real and surreal characters and worlds, and they take you on theatrical journeys way beyond the length of the plays." -- Stuart Hoar, playwright "Angie Farrow manages to get epic themes across in these intense and clever short plays. Perfect material for any tertiary or senior high school drama class." -- Robert Gilbert, director of theatre arts, Rangi Ruru Girls' School
