Ann Marie Di Mambro's Brothers of Thunder, in which a young man who's HIV-positive takes refuge with a Roman Catholic priest

Stephen Greenhorn's 'road movie for the stage', Passing Places, in which two Motherwell lads steal a surfboard and head for the highlands

David Greig's One Way Street, where Flannery tells us his life story in the form of a guide to Berlin

Liz Lochhead's Quelques Fleurs, in which Verena and oilman husband Derek's childless marriage is unravelled

Linda McLean's One Good Beating, a blackly comic account of a brother and sister taking revenge on their violent father

Iain Crichton Smith's Lazybed, in which Murdo, refusing to get out of bed, is visited by brother, neighbours, doctor, Death and Immanuel Kant
