The Bumblebee:  1 x M or F (30s/40s) + 1 x M or F (30s+)
A patient wants answers from their doctor. Why are they not allowed to leave this hospital and return to their daughter? And why have they no memory of what led them here?

Cat in a Box: 2 x M or F (any age). Please note: one role requires physical fitness
Never take over a cat’s cardboard box. Especially if you’re the ‘other’ cat. It may lead to discussions on quantum theory. And fish sticks!

The Cord:  1 x F (50s/60s)
Angela tells her poignant tale of a daughter/mother relationship, and the pain of watching a loved one inflicted by an illness. 

The Costume Department: 2 x F (any age)
Comedy caper as two Costume Department volunteers bicker over how best to organise the costumes and their unorthodox fundraising schemes in this brilliantly funny comedy.  

How To Put A Scratch In A Dinghy: 2 x F (20s/30s) + 1 M (20s/30s)
When Zara witnesses a disturbing incident at a club, she takes matters into her own hands.  But at what cost? Has she gone too far? A gripping and thought-provoking drama about social media and real life consequences. 

Meeting Mrs Grim: 1 x M (any age) + 1 x F (any age)
Jonathan has a visitor, and she comes equipped with a scythe. As the clock counts down, he soon realises that it’s not all fun and games for Mrs Grim. 

Perversions: 2 x M (any age) + 1 x F (any age)
Three strangers; one mystery. One cannot see, one cannot hear, one cannot speak.  What has brought them here? And what lies ahead? A dark and captivating thriller.
