A full length play for a doubling cast of 8.
Winner of a Scotsman Edinburgh Fringe First award. What would you do for love? How far would you reach for money? When does good turn bad, moral to amoral and is there any way back from the abyss? Set today, here and where daily existence is just a violent graze away from the dark underbelly that slithers beneath… Skinner is a man with a talent. Arden is a man to heartlessly exploit that talent and Val is caught between a rock and a hard place. In this brutal, shocking and blackly-comedic award-winning drama, these violent delights have violent ends.
The Alphabet Girl
A play for one actress.
A predatory grannie, a good-at-parties mother, a shed-load of spineless male role-models and the anonymous here and now have all had a ravishing effect on The Alphabet Girl – making her the modern woman she is. Uncompromising, she’s looking for Mr Right, Mr Goodbar, Mr Wonderful. She just wants love and nothing will stop her getting it.
A tour de force: enthralling, poetic, compelling, mysterious, shocking.
A full length play with live music and a doubling cast of 12.
In 1769, Monsieur Chevalier D’Eon de Beaumont, spy, diplomat, decorated Prussian war hero and international bon viveur emerged from his London apartments in female attire and spent the rest of his life as the woman she now said she always was. Proudly wearing the Chevalier d’Honneur medal on her flowing robes, she outraged and antagonised the whole of the French aristocracy, spending astronomical amounts of English Guineas and running up huge diplomatic debts fighting for her very existence and acceptance in an unforgiving world. This bizarre, true story is challenging, emotional, painfully funny and provocative; reaching deep into our perceptions of normality, acceptability and promiscuity, setting an historical thumbprint on the way we live our lives in an “enlightened” 21st Century world.
A full length play for two actors in 3 acts. Two men. One girl. No hope. Another performance of a trite west End star vehicle play adds to an already dreadful day. In a top-floor dressing room of a West End Theatre, Martin isn’t there. Bill is alone and in agony. It’s curtain up. Why is Bill not relishing his moment of understudy glory and what has Katie Crowder got to do with it all? “A gloriously funny, beautifully paced glimpse of the bitchy bonhomie of backstage life” The Guardian “A little gem” Theatre Review.
A Dangerous Woman
A play for one actress.
A Dangerous Woman is funny, surprising, poignant, touching and disturbing. Finding her perfect, childhood-sweetheart marriage descending into a mixture of apathy, rage and enforced dependency, the reality of losing everything is presented to Monica Sims in a starkness she’d much rather not see. However, when a random involuntary act takes her by surprise, she discovers a completely unexpected, undreamed of career change making her a dangerous woman in an outrageous bid for freedom.
