ROULETTE: 12 DIALOGUES

by Raimondo Cortese

Edgy, provocative and emotionally honest, each of these twelve short plays explores the nuances and subtleties of a meeting between two people.

Based on the ancient Chinese cosmology, The Twelve Branches of Life, the plays are a revealing mosaic of human interaction across a range of emotional landscapes.

From a chance meeting between a man and a woman in a café, to the prodigal son who returns home to enslave a helpless older man, this fiercely intelligent writing illuminates moments of cruelty and beauty so often hidden when two people interact.

"It is modernity without formal structure, or even a hint of didacticism, but has a power that can make everyday language resonant with emotion and meaning... [it] may well be pointing to the future of Australian playwriting." - Helen Thomson, The Age
