THREE diverse Australian stories including a world premiere First Nations work will round out the HotHouse Theatre season this year.
Covering July to December, Season 2021: Part Two was announced at the Butter Factory Theatre in Wodonga on Wednesday night.
HotHouse Theatre artistic director and chief executive Karla Conway welcomed the lineup, which comprised the world premiere and a show by an all-local cast of young people.
"While we might have found our way home, we continue to find our way to resilience," she said.
"All the works celebrate the strength that we have as individuals and a community to move through adversity to triumph; Part Two is filled with surprise, inspiration and delight."
The first show, Prima Facie, is a taut, rapid-fire and gripping one-woman show by Suzie Miller (Sunset Strip).
It exposes the shortcomings of a patriarchal justice system.
Sheridan Harbridge stars as Tessa, a criminal lawyer at the top of her game who knows the law permits no room for emotion in a tour-de-force performance.
Prima Facie runs for six performances from August 11.

The second show is I've Been Meaning to Ask You, which was created by The Good Room. IBMTAY has young people asking adults all the big questions: Why do you drink to have fun? What was life like before the internet? Why do you have to go to work?
HotHouse will invite local artists to audition for the show, which has six performances from October 6.
The third show is the compelling Chase, written and performed by Carly Sheppard.
Hailing from the streets of Frankston, the character Chase is on a spiritual journey to reclaim her cultural heritage.
