Alchemy is a stageplay structured around the progression of the Great Work, set in near-future Australia.

This two-act (40-minutes per act) play, set in a suburban Perth house in late December 2012, tells the story of a young woman whose obsession with the British monarch forces her life and relationships to a crisis point. The protagonist's personal and spiritual development during the course of the play reflects the alchemical procedures traditionally used to produce the Philosopher's Stone.
