Title: Underland (A5 reproduction)
Author: Collier, Alexandra
Price: $18.95

Violet and Ruth are bored as hell in their small town Australian high school, where there’s nothing but red earth, hurricane fences and the far off whirring of the quarry. But when a new teacher arrives, the borders of the town are no longer the limit of where a girl can go. If only they can escape to Melbourne or Paris or Tokyo before the sinister creature lurking at the edges of the town snatches them up and feeds them to the insatiable earth.

Underland is a new Australian play that cracks open the desert to reveal mythic beasts, Chekhovian love triangles and big sky blues, while giving the finger to everything you thought you know about "down under" from Fosters' commercials. Underland was developed at Sydney Theatre Company.
