Suitable for Year 9+. A video of the full Arcola Theatre production plus interviews with the writer/director, John Retallack and the actors from the original stage performance, Alyson Coote and Celia Meiras, is also available. Helmet by Douglas Maxwell An innovative play using the rules of a computer game to explore the changing fortunes and relationships of Sal and Roddy (a.k.a Helmet). Will they win through or will it be game over? Suitable for Year 9+. A video of the full performance of the Traverse Theatre/Paines Plough production and an interview with the writer, Douglas Maxwell, is also available. Mama Yankee's Life Machine by Ed Hime Mama Yankee is all powerful, keeping her subjects in thrall to her delicious meat pies. But her rule is under threat from the Overland Vegetarian Resistance. Who will win the hearts and minds - and stomachs - of Hackett, Cleaver and co? (No video of this play.) Hey There Boy With the BeBop - by Abi Bown Chantaye has a dilemma: should she go along with her street and reject terminally ill Leo or stand out from the crowd and accept his friendship? A lyrical play which is both funny and moving. (No video of this play.)

Reviews

'The video of Hannah and Hanna is brilliant. I was very moved watching it...It comes off the page beautifully.'

'An exhilarating introduction to contemporary theatre...Year 7s will enjoy the wildly futuristic and surreal Mama Yankee.'

'Neill, TES, December 2002
