Two of a kind - short play about racial tensions and stereotyping

Michelle Morgan - Sunday, November 10, 2019

Chuffed to get such positive feedback from the Head of English at Grace Christian School in Bunbury about my short play, TWO OF A KIND, which was read and discussed recently in class by Year 10 students. They found TWO OF A KIND to be a 'fantastic text' to compare with other Australian texts that they studied this year.

TWO OF A KIND uses humour and drama to explore racial tensions and stereotypes in Australian society.

TWO OF A KIND was first performed at the Civic Theatre Playhouse in Newcastle in November 2010 as part of the Short & Sweet Newcastle Festival.

The script is available for free download from my website.

I welcome feedback from any schools or theatre companies who have read / performed any of my plays.
