Some stitch together into what might be larger pieces based on themes (Keystone; plays in a greenhouse) or characters (Anjali + Zac plays; Antigone plays). Most are sketches, all are works in progress. The comments section has been turned off from the start but you can reach me through leaving a comment at my artist website (www.darraghmartin.com) if you wish.

The ‘ARKHIVE’ tab has all the plays + a short description in reverse order.

The ‘categories’ section (visible if you click the white folder on the top left corner and scroll down) also sorts the plays into some loose themes.

And down below, into infinity, are the plays in reverse order…
