Death of a Super Hero
by Tom Moriarty
Three superheroes find themselves on the edge of retirement. Not through choice, but through the almost parasitic demand that society places on its idols for constant entertainment. In a capitalist society, is there any room for superheroes?
by Caron Brand
Susan is strong minded and honest-- often way too honest. Louise, her therapist, runs her sessions which are fraught with emotion. Susan takes Louise on a journey of aliens and marathons; has she had a breakdown or did she know exactly what she was doing? Was she right to do what she has done? What would you do? How would you cope if you were in her situation?
What I Want
by Cicely Gill
The dilemma around what to do if one person wants a baby and the other doesn’t, when the female is pregnant and can’t face a termination.
by Stewart Schiller
Sometimes it's just easier not to listen. In the social media age, it's easier than ever to just filter out the voices we don't want to hear...
Silver and Gold
by Corinne Salisbury
London, now. Andrew is treating Lydia to a fancy dinner, but it's not a date. It's a transaction. It's a contract. It's conspicuous consumption.
But is it even that simple- when Lydia has her own agenda too?
The first scene of a new play in development about wealth, greed, charity, philanthropy and freeloading.
The History of A Life or a new Roxana
by Shilpa T Hyland
Based on Daniel Defoe’s Roxana, the story of a young woman and her maid who use their ingenuity to first survive and then climb the social ladder. Shilpa Hyland's new play uses the lengthy conversations between maid and mistress to examine Defoe’s dialogues about relationships as contracts; sexuality, morality and autonomy. A provocative, contemporary re-telling.
