Atlantis by Lally Katz( Book )

in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lally Katz is on a journey. She's left Australia behind and she's in the country of her childhood, trying to find a way back to when things were innocent. Her relationships are chaotic, her professional life is a shambles and contemporary America seems riddled with charlatans and shysters. But along the way moments of wisdom bubble up, as if from some lost ancient city beneath the waves off Florida...Five actors play the myriad characters of Lally's life: ageing Jewish grandparents in Miami, wizened taxi drivers, cynical prophets, unhappy pharmacists, clowns, hip-hop artistes, narcissists, angels, animals - and, of course, Lally herself

Goodbye vaudeville Charlie Mudd & Return to earth by Lally Katz( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Return to Earth is an imaginative, bittersweet comedy about a young woman who returns home only to find that everything is strange and unfamiliar. She doesn't seem to know if she wants to stay or not. But the pull on her is strong. They want her here. They need her. A best friend, a man who could be a lover, her Mum and Dad. And her brother whose little girl is dying of kidney disease. When Alice is called on to help them, real life starts to tug her down to earth. Set in 1914 as Melbourne's Swanston River threatens to consume all in its wake, Goodbye Vaudeville Charlie Mudd unearths a half-remembered world of highly questionable character, in which a ghostly, clamorous chorus rails against the din of the modern world

The rabbits by Kate Miller-Heidke( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Rabbits' is an evocative and deeply moving story. Adapted from the haunting picture book by John Marsden and Shaun Tan, it tells of colonisation, displacement and, ultimately, of hope.

A doll's house by Lally Katz( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nora seems to have it all - a successful husband, adorable children and a beautiful home. But this picture perfect life is actually a complicated trap of secrets and lies. Here is a story of domestic revolution, marriage and motherhood, female empowerment and the journey towards self-liberation. Henrik Ibsen's great psychological thriller was recently named as the world's most performed play. And why wouldn't it be? It's brilliantly plotted, boasts striking characters, and tells a story that's still as charged and moving as when it was first performed in 1879. Now adapted in a superb new version by Lally Katz, one of Australia's most gifted playwrights
The Apoclapyse [sic] bear trilogy by Lally Katz( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Playscripts. Two school kids meet Humphrey B. Bear's evil cousin in this surreal comedy from Lally Katz. The idea behind The Apocalypse Bear Trilogy formed in 2007, when Katz was commissioned to write a short play about the Melbourne suburb of Kew. The playwright's response, The Fag from Zagreb, was and still is the best thing she's written. It's resurrected here as the first part of the trilogy. Jeremy (Luke Mullins) returns home from school to find his immaculate kitchen invaded by the Apocalypse Bear (Brian Lipson). As the Bear potters around like a substitute parent, Jeremy chats online to a suicidal gay Croatian. What makes it work is the degree of empathic imagination Katz brings to the character of Jeremy. Private schoolboys are rarely captured with such hilarity: the insolence swirling around adolescent brittleness, with the Bear functioning rather as the zombie bunny does in Donnie Darko - a monster lurking in cracks through the picket fence. In the second part, Back to the Cafeteria, the Bear reappears, this time to torment the unconfident Sonia. After swapping lunches with her, the Bear verbally chases her through a forest of teenage insecurities. Sonia is almost an anti-Goldilocks, with a disturbingly contingent sense of self. The final part sees Jeremy and Sonia as a couple, grown up
