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
