Boxed

Synopsis:
When Chris turns up to ask for Suzie's forgiveness, she lets him into the flat against her better judgment. In the hour and twenty minutes that follows, Chris tries to woo her back. The encounter, played out in real time shows the whole curve of their relationship as they reminisce about he past. The play swings from comedy to tragedy and is a roller coaster ride of emotion.

Notes:

Dirty Boggers

Trudy and Lucy are best friends. They have known each other since they were five. They play together and work together as usherettes in a local cinema. The girls like a drink and a night out, and this night is no exception. That is until Lucy tells Trudy her darkest secret. a high octane comedy set in a cinema.

W Is For Banker

Synopsis:
Yanis Nicolias is a self made lad from North London. He calls himself John Nicolas as it sounds so much better with his mates in the Golden Mile. Johnny has done alright, he's married a posh bird and has perfect blonde kids and they all live happily in their white stucco house in Holland Park. Life is good, or rather was good, until the financial crisis sent him and his company's assets nose diving faster than a kamikaze pilot. The only person left speaking to him is his erstwhile Russian Mistress Lenka who is reaching the end of her very short tether. W For Banker is a hard hitting modern comedy.
