New Plays Delve Deep into the Nature of Vanilla Slice

Greetings from the  Silver Gull awards at the New Theatre Sydney. We are getting readings.

The shortlist was:

  1. Next To Godliness by Alastair Brown
  2. Chicken In A Biscuit by Mary Rachel Brown and Jamie Oxenbould
  3. Burning by Christopher Bryant
  4. The Mews by Joanna Erskine
  5. The Dragonfly by Simon Thomson

The winner is Next To Godliness by Alastair Brown. Two of the plays feature death, which is not unusual, but two mentioned vanilla slice, which is. We need more discussion of the merits, or otherwise of vanilla slice.
