Dark Comedy

Running time: aprox. 45mins
Cast: Seven actors plus one DJ.

The Flats is about six people and one DJ who live in an inner city apartment block. It is about their nasty, creepy, dirty, juicy, slippery, fleshy, mouldy, tickly, prickly, ballsey, hyper, psycho, chicken-loving, letter-writing, no-friend-having, anger-festering, orgasm-mongering, death-smelling, nipple-tweaking, medicated, fabricated, penetrated, isolated, unabated little habits and thoughts … it is about those moments of horrible, screeching, clumsy, excruciating and beautiful humanity they experience.

The Flats received a commendation at the 2003 Philip Parsons Young Playwright Award
