Over the Moon and Far Away is based on the historical experiences of many women interned during World War II.

The play takes us on a year long journey, from December 1943 to December 1944 in one women’s POW Camp somewhere in Java. The play is therefore an allegory for all the women’s camps across south-east Asia – names and places are not important, but the stories are. Over the Moon and Far Away represents the sufferings of a cross section of the 70,000 women and children interned in what was then the Dutch East Indies and now Indonesia during World War II.

It is about the women who escaped Singapore and Malaysia on boats only to be torpedoed, picked up 24 hours later from the sea to be brought to camps on shore.

It is about the women who were Australian nurses who worked with no medicines or equipment against a tide of tropical diseases.

It is about the women who had no skills other than their ability to socialize before the war, who dug deep and became innovative survivors.

It is about the women who kept their husbands’ children safe through three and a half years of deprivation and incarceration.

It is about the women who made sacrifices for others because that was just the way they were.

It is about women, who looked at the moon every night and dreamed of freedom.

Five plays for getting into Shakespeare by Carla More



What is the backstory to "The Tempest"?

Who is plotting against who in "Julius Caesar"?

Why is Ariel vying against Puck?

How did Feste break a leg?

And - Where IS Sean Connery?



More Catch The Bard offers five funny and informative short plays based on the characters and themes of William Shakespeare’s plays, providing an introduction to Shakespeare for English and Drama students from year 7-10.



Each play is supplemented with questions and in depth extension exercises catering for a variety of learners and styles.







The Calm before the Tempest



The story of The Tempest is like an iceberg; most of it is backstory. When a ship carrying passengers on their way home from a wedding is wrecked not on an iceberg but on an island, Prospero tells Miranda in flashback scenes what actually happened in Milan twelve years ago. 9 characters.



This Rough Magic



Shakespeare’s magical characters meet at the Rough Magic Conference for Fairyland’s Annual Awards. Some supernaturals have personal gripes, whilst the fairies are solely there to check out Puck. After Prospero resigns his post as Chairman and drowns his magic book, Oberon and Titania, still quarrelling, vie for the position. Happily Puck ends the play with his usual epilogue. 15 characters.



The Festival of Fools



When Shakespeare’s funny men get together at the 400th Annual Comedy Festival there’s bound to be silly-ness and big egos. Whilst Launce, Bottom, the Dromio twins and others strut their stuff , those waiting backstage have a lot to say about everyone else’s performance 15 characters.



Caesar’s Salad Days are Over



Two minor characters of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Popilius Lena and Artemidorus are actually agents of The SUPER TASKFORCE of the ROMAN EMPIRE’s SECRET SERVICE or STRESS. They hire an actor Antonius Maximillius to play a Soothsayer and therefore warn Caesar of the imminent plot. 3 characters.



Sound & Fury



Drama teacher Victor, after watching a ‘Japanese version’ of the Scottish Play, has rewritten it as a Musical. His colleagues are less than enthusiastic, especially when they hear that the ex-barrel girl from The Price is Right will be appearing as Lady Macbeth. The usual school play disasters occur. Fiction and reality blend as the production descends into a tartan chaos signifying nothing. 26 characters.
