VICIOUS STREAKSby Alex Broun
Vicious Streaks is a collection of seven short plays, ranging in length from 10 to 20 minutes.
These plays explore the edgier side of life and tackle difficult and complex issues such as mother-daughter relationships (The First Fireworks), solicitation and assisted suicide (The Gift of the Gun), terminal illness (The Celine Dion Songbook) and pub violence (Gone). These are counter-pointed with more comic explorations of advertising culture (Drew Barrymore and Sigmund Freud meet the Cookie Monster), the law (Rumpole of the Sydenham Line) and one-night stands (Saturday Night Newtown, Sunday Morning Newtown).
