"Zoo" a one -act comedy
When the lights come up we apparently see a man and woman sat in dressing gowns behind newspapers discussing the news but when they put the papers down we're amazed to find that their faces are actually those of futuristic monkeys. This is a world where the monkeys advanced and the humans didn't. We join the family who decide to take their children on a visit to the local Human Safari Park and with a guide we watch the hilarious antics of the stone-age humans who communicate with each other in cave-man grunts. This comic script recently took a group of Young Farmers through several rounds to the National Finals in Blackpool and has been recently staged in Johannesburg. in 2010 it was staged by Durham Young Farmers, went through the northern round and is next being staged next in Manchester.

Plot synopsis: The play opens in a dingy room in a community centre, so like many other meeting places for groups. The women are chatting animatedly before the session begins, and the audience are not aware of their purpose. When the session begins Sarah reveals her job, which sparks a great deal of conflict between the woman, and prompts Ester to describe her experiences with The Police. Through their own stories the women begin to discuss their common experience: they have all been victims of rape. The women are in roughly appropriate percentages to the actual crime figures: 17% of rapes are by strangers, 54% by current or former partners. There is discussion on whether their attacks could have been prevented, what action could have been taken afterwards, and whether there is a way of moving forward after rape. In the second section of the play, set six month later, a new member arrives: Rob. This provokes much fear and anger among the women, as the group offers sanctuary away from men and the threat thereof. After much persuasion Rob admits that he has been raped, and has nowhere else to go. His arrival allows for discussion around the male mindset towards rape, the concept of “urges” and the famous assertion that “all men are potential rapists”. They also deal with his fears about what people will think of him, and whether his sexuality has been altered. Through the later portion of the play Katie begins to support Rob and they develop a rapport. Katie learns that not all men want to take advantage, and that perhaps she could form a bond with someone and build up trust. Ester reveals that in the interim her attacked has struck again, however this time he has been successfully reported. Although it cannot change her illness, she feels less angry towards The Police. As someone who ahs been through the entire conviction process Suzanne offers her support to Ester and they develop and unlikely bond. Having seen the resolve of both women, Sarah decides to press charges- it is by no means a happy ending, but it is a beginning for her, and an opportunity to seek some justice for her ordeal. Wendy still cannot forgive herself for the murder, and has begun to “atone” for her crime by volunteering to help other women, in vulnerable women’s shelters and in other support groups. Finally Carol, left with no one to look after, begins to grieve. She realizes she has thrown herself so deeply into the project that she has been denying her grief for well over a year. As the session ends the others begin to help her come to terms. Research: This play was informed predominantly by The Truth About Rape campaign, run in conjuction with Rape Crisis. Their site provides much of the statistics that shaped the stories of the characters and their topics of discussion. www.truthaboutrape.co.uk

A Good Boy
“It is impossible to fight the past; no matter how much I try, the past will always win.” –Vocoda In a small studio flat in east London a young couple try to come to terms with a universal issue that many of us go though at some point and to some degree and yet find it hard to talk openly about. While many can accept this more sexual society that we live in, others, like Sam, can find it difficult to understand and to cope with its consequences. What follows is a journey into the self-destructive behaviour of curiosity and the effect it can have on a long and loving relationship. It all starts with one simple question, a question no-one would give a second thought to, but for Sam its just the begining of a downward spiral for the need to learn more about his fiancé past, this need grows within him and begins to have a deverstating effect on their plans for the future, the only way he knows how to vent his frustrations and limitations on the subject, is by self-harming, which crates it own problems. “A Good Boy” does not offer any answers, but it stands as a warning.

A Manger Carol - a Nativity Play by Richard van den Akker
Every year, in churches across the world, children perform the story of the nativity before an audience of proud and excited parents. In many cases a large group of children are dressed up and paraded across the stage while a narrator reads the story of the birth of Christ. Often this tradition becomes boring and commonplace, even though they are acting out the greatest story ever told. This nativity play is designed to be a little different. It initially starts off with a departure from tradition, by introducing comedic elements into what has become, through habit, a solemn proceeding. At the end the play closes with an important message about Christmas and our Savior Jesus Christ; that the story isn’t about the scenery or the costumes, but about the people in that story. A group of ordinary people who came together to take part in an extraordinary event that changed the world forever. My hope for this play is that people will enjoy and laugh through the comedy, and then take home the message that Jesus himself often took chances, shook things up, and stepped out in faith, and that we, as his disciples, should do the same. “How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, his precepts! O! Tis easier to keep holidays than commandments.” - Benjamin Franklin

Awaiting the transaction to be completed, Gary phones his boyfriend Keith, to find he's been dumped. Karen is also in for a shock. As the transaction is completed, her client expires. Faced with the task of informing the Police or disposing of the body, they discover he's a high ranking Police officer. They decide to be a happily married couple, and the body is Sarah's long lost uncle from Australia. Their plan is thwarted when Chief Inspector Watson suddenly arrives after a tip-off of unsavoury goings on in the area. The senior officer makes a miraculous recovery, then promptly dies again. As the smell of corruption in high places, espionage and the stability of national security is revealed, will the couple's lives ever be the same again and is the Chief Inspector really who he says he is? The play is a tongue in cheek adult comedy drama in the worst/best possible taste overflowing with inuendo and double ententre.

After returning to his table, and Laura, who is quite upset with Michael’s actions, Michael has no choice but to tell Laura about his relationship with his parents, who are no longer living.

As Michael and Laura walk, hand-in-hand, down a quaint old street, lined with old brownstones and trees, they come upon a scene they can’t believe. They see, through one of the brownstone’s windows, the old woman and her son sitting together on a sofa talking. Michael and Laura, wanting to know the gist of the conversation, hide behind a tree and watch. They can’t hear the conversation, but they don’t need to when they see the old lady and her son hug each other. Laura can’t believe, nor can Michael, that the intervention that took place in the restaurant really had an affect on the man. Michael and Laura, come from behind the tree, and continue their walk down the street, holding hands, as before, but now their steps have even more of a bounce to them.

Cancelled - an award winning one act farce set in a 1940's radio station by M. Robert Gruwald
In this one act farce, set in a studio in a radio station in the 1940′s, the cast of a popular radio show are held hostage by one of the show’s sponsors, Monty Navoli, who is furious that the show has been cancelled, and who also, unfortunately, appears to be a member of the mob. When it is discovered that the producer of the show, Walter St. Paul, has taken Monty Navoli’s money and spent it himself, Monty threatens to shoot him unless the show goes on air one last time. It all falls hilariously apart as the actors struggle to produce a whole show with only a few pages of script, no sound man and a gun pointed at their heads. The play was selected as a finalist in Riant Theatre’s 2008 Strawberry One-Act Festival, and placed second in the Little Theatre of Alexandria’s 2009 one-act playwriting competition.

Choice - hard hitting British drama by Peter Hynds
Choice is a hard hitting British drama script involving a woman, a man and a small boy. It takes the audience on a journey from what appears to be a man’s sexual fantasy, to a child’s disappointment at his dad not being home to a far more sinister conclusion involving both sex and violence. Choice has been performed in Swindon and London and is about to embark on a short tour. It is a very hard hitting piece that deals with events that come from an Operation Yewtree like event. It has so far been compared to good old fashioned “in yer face” theatre and the likes of Sarah Kane.

A young couple, whose church recently burned down under ‘mysterious circumstances,’ are desperately looking for a venue for their wedding which is in two days time. The only venue that seems to be completely open is the local church of Satan. But they do have their reservations. The marble floors are lovely (but maybe that’s because it’s easier to clean the blood off) and the priest seems quite affable (but then there’s the goat…) A religious satire play for those who like to see the funny side of society’s norms and values.

Cyril's Story
Cyril lives alone in a flat on the ninth floor of a London Council tower block. He is isolated and lonely, and has not recovered from the death of his wife twelve years ago. His social contact is limited to reluctant visits to a Jewish Seniors Luncheon Club and meeting his neighbours in the lift or at the local shops. Afraid to leave his flat after dark, he feels a prisoner. Against this background he shares with the audience his spirited views on the failings of modern life. In addition though, he tells about the 1930's when as a strong and confident young man, he fought Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists who used to provoke the Jewish community in the East End of London with their anti-semitic rhetoric. In particular, Cyril describes taking part in the famous 'Battle of Cable Street' in 1936 when three thousand fascist Blackshirts were prevented from marching through the East End by a coalition of Jews, Communists and local workers. His vivd memories and observations are expressed with humour and compassion, and a smattering of Yiddish just to spice things up a little.

Gotcha!
Gotcha! is a play written in the Brechtian style of the street scene. Set in a court room it explores an event from a variety of different view each time getting exaggerated as each character puts their own spin on it. The tag line is "Sometimes it's better to judge for yourself." Casting is very flexiable and can include doubling up, or seperate characters in the re telling. The same characters can even be played by other sexes as this lends itself very well to Brecht's technique of alienation. Originally written for a group of 12-16 year olds to perform.

Jumping the league
Mike isn’t your typical Catholic priest – he has his own gun, likes to hunt and, to be frank his language is a little on the foul side. His best friend, Pat is the total opposite. In fact, Pat acts very much more like a real priest than Mike does. When Pat comes round to visit Mike they end up having a few drinks. As they drink, the conversation veers very naturally onto the subject of sex (or the lack thereof) as both guys are celibate (and thus think about it a lot) – one by choice of profession and the other because life has kind of gotten in the way. The lack of sex, however isn’t the only thing that isn’t all that satisfying. It turns out that neither is completely satisfied in their jobs and wish to ‘jump the league,’ as it were. They only need that small push to make them go in this comedy about a priest and his best friend.

A fun filled one act musical for six actors, 3F and, er, 2 other F dressed up as men and at least one real man with a real beard. Madrababes was staged in June 2013 in Swindon, as part of Madam Renards Mini Fringe to great reviews! A REVIEW OF MADRABABES AS PART OF MADAM RENARDS FRINGE ‘One of the main words that popped into my head when I first started watching Madrababes was ‘fun.’ A one act musical made up entirely of madrigals, a form of early music pop music. Please be advised to leave your serious hats at the door for an hour of entertaining quips and silliness, a story of 6 friends finding love through jokes and song. We meet John and Tom, two stylish elegant ‘men’ lamenting their lack of luck with their lady friends Phyllis and Philomela, could it possibly be because they are far more worried about what they’re wearing than displays of manliness? The ladies are equally lamenting about the lack of decent men in the area when in walks Amyntas, a tall man with a real, not drawn on, beard and a deep voice. Naturally fighting ensues and much harmonised singing. ‘ by Abby Sparrow

Never Nothin' Again No More
This is a gritty, hard-hitting American play about teen suicide, a piece considered unique among plays on this topic and suitable for both youths and adults. It is set very much among the current youth and hip-hop cultures and will translate well for British audiences. The unique concept for this play involves a fantasy character called the Rapmaster, who attempts to entice the two male characters to commit suicide. The Rapmaster’s arguments express the tunnel-vision feelings that pull these characters toward self-destruction, the kind of rationalizations and distorted arguments anyone considering suicide might experience in their heads. In effect, the audience sees directly into the minds of two people considering suicide.

Never Tell Them
Winner of the Oxford Writers/Oxford Playhouse New Writing Competition 2008. Described by Gareth Machin, National Theatre, as 'impressive', 'deft', with 'great theatrical moment'(s), displaying 'an essential humanity'; 'Gripping' DailyInfo; 'You can hardly get a better evening's entertainment' Oxford Prospect. The play is in two scenes, both set in 1920. In scene 1 we meet Celia Jones who has invited a spiritualist to her home (Professor Brailey). Brailey is a conman who agrees to perform a seance believing Celia to be a war widow. He is surprised at the end of the scene when her husband, Captain Jones, enters. Scene 2 is a week later and Brailey performs the seance to Celia and a very sceptical Captain. The con-tricks of the spiritualist are revealed but the experience releases all the anger and fear of the soldier. The play touches on war guilt, the home front, and the afterlife. Production history: Burton Taylor Theatre, Oxford, 2008; OxFringe Festival, Oxford, 2010.

Picasso
The story opens in Picasso's Parisian studio, 1937. In Picasso's nightmares, he's entrapped inside the canvas which stands over his bed. Unable to visualise what he wants on it, he preoccupies himself with lovers Dora and Marie-Thérèse, violently spurning his wife, Olga. Wishing on a blue rose, Olga calls forth the Minotaur to heap revenge on her husband: to lure him and his muses through the canvas and hold them in torment, forever in Hades. Seeking ideas, Picasso and his Memento Mori conscience follow the Minotaur to Tartarus. Olga tells Picasso it's hubris that condemns him. Memento Mori is butchered by Torturadors. Picasso discovers Memento Mori's camera cable, which connects to his studio. He follows it to the back of his canvas where the Minotaur cuts it, sealing his fate. Picasso realises this is his second visit to Hades. He met the Minotaur at birth. The Minotaur offers Picasso freedom if he creates a magical painting. The Minotaur, disguised as Picasso, entices the muses into Tartarus. Olga slights the Atormentas. Pierrot and the Atormentas reverse Olga's spell. Pierrot shows Picasso how to make powers of thought reality. Picasso creates the Torero and learns to project controlled mental images onto canvas. The Torero kills a Torturador, introducing death to Hades. The Torero, following Picasso's behest, slays the Minotaur and rescues the muses. Picasso, believing this will achieve release, is frustrated: he remains imprisoned. The Torero becomes his own man. Two lovers purposely die on his sword, to be together, beyond Hell. Picasso realises the Torero is key. He resurrects the Minotaur. The Minotaur and Torero do battle. The Torero dies. The Minotaur gains the Torero's sword of Death. Picasso gains the corpse on his fabric; Pierrot thinks the blue rose onto canvas. 'Guernica' is complete. Picasso, Olga and muses are freed.

‘Little Women reincarnated on Red Dwarf’ Being a woman and an engineer is not unusual in the 21st Century but when you’re a genetic engineer, pregnant and survivor of the apocalypse there are some unique decisions to face. With characteristic detachment and scientific expertise, Frances has already made plans for the survival of the human race. All she has to do is to wake her three random companions and act on their decisions once they realise that they are the only survivors and that they carry a genetic toolkit embedded in their arms. To Frances’ surprise, her three companions do not sit down at once to discuss strategies. In fact they seem rather distressed. They want to know all kinds of irrelevant details and seem to hate her rather than feel gratitude. It does not help them to realise that they were ‘specially selected’ because they were ahead of Frances in a supermarket queue. Not helped at all by the formal use of furniture, ‘getting round the table’ and ‘speaking through the chair’ the last humans work out what their choice really means. Basically they have to choose between no humans, a lottery or a Chinese take-away – applied to the biggest pool party ever, in the human gene pool. In making their decision, they discover that ordinary people do matter and Frances discovers the limits of logic.

Prelude to Macbeth - one act play by James Chalmers
This award winning one act play is a prequel to Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The story of how Macbeth becomes Thane of Glamis and how he meets Lorna Stewart who becomes his wife – Lady Macbeth.

Battle weary and devastated by his loss he decides to give up being a soldier. Duncan doesn’t want to lose Macbeth. He offers him the title of Thane of Glamis if he will agree to continue as his general. Macbeth knows he will either have to accept the offer – or flee into exile. Duncan won’t take no for an answer. Prelude to Macbeth won the 2010 Seahorse Award for best stage play at the Moondance Film Festival in America. At the Wilmslow Guild Drama Festival 2010 it received the Adjudicators Award for the most original piece of theatre.

Restaurants at Beautiful times - a one act for four actors by David McGinnis
In this one act drama for four actors, the stage and the actor’s lives are divided into the ‘restaurant’ and the ‘place where the food is prepared.’ Jean and Myceneaus live and work in the place where the food is prepared. They have never known another existence, and theirs is grim existence at best. Their only interaction is with the head waiter who liaises between both sides of the stage – both worlds, as it were. This one act drama for four actors compares the worlds of the very rich and the very poor, and plays on the fact that neither side has any no idea what happens on ‘the other side.’ The play has been produced in Las Vegas by the Nevada Conservatory Theatre and in New York by Working Man’s Clothes thus far. The author would request that he approves/disapproves any dialogue changes or renaming of characters, but genders may be altered at the theatre’s discretion. Read more about David McGinnis

Roots and Wings - one act drama by Terry Roueche
Two day laborers for a construction company dig a hole in the earth 13 feet deep. When the work crew leaves at the day’s end they are simply forgotten, abandoned, with no way out. Their struggle plays out beyond just learning to work together to escape, for both men are trapped by, and come to face, their own choices in life and what makes each of them feel powerless. Joey, in his mid to late 20s, is angry at the world, but doesn’t know where to direct his rage. He wants nothing more than to prove his worth as a man, but in a much deeper philosophical sense, he feels the need to reason his existence but doesn’t understand his life beyond a primitive turmoil. Life has not taught him how to grapple with the meaning of his feelings. Billy, in his 40s or 50s, wants only to be left alone. He was no different than Joey when he was younger, but life has brought him defeat, hopelessness, and the feeling of impotence against the world which holds a strong power over him. He has given up and knows each of his tomorrows will be no different than the day before. He fears and placates authority and hates this about himself. As the story unfolds the men move through a series of personal crises. First, they come to accept that they are trapped. Then, blame heightens the tension as Joey becomes more and more frustrated and dangerous. Because he is primitive and inarticulate he knows no other way to solve his problems than using his fist. But as the two men begin to learn about one another, the tension eases. At this point Joey gains an understanding which opens a door for him to attempt to reason his existence. The play reveals a single yet significant difference in their lives: one man had a father and one did not. Both characters gain a moral strength and attempt one possibility to escape which fails quickly. Billy gives up and begins digging furiously into the side of the pit. Since this would cause the earth to collapse on top of them and bury them alive Joey roughly stops him. Billy, emotionally broken, collapses and begins to weep. This enrages Joey and once again he reverts to using his fist. But his anger turns as he begins to understand his existence for the first time in his life; in order to survive, both physically and psychologically, it is vital that they each stand up for themselves.

The Attic
Winner of the 2007 Oxford Writers/Oxford Playhouse New Writing Competition. ‘The Attic’ explores the lives of two women living in an old attic, hidden away from the outside world. Outside, troops roam the war-torn streets trying to round up undesirables to be taken away to camps where they will disappear forever. As the bombs fall around them the two women attempt to maintain normality when their safety is shattered by the sudden arrival of an airman, shot down during a bombing raid and on the run. Tension mounts as the troops outside begin to close in on their prey, threatening the future of everyone. We then discover this is not 1940s Germany, but in fact the US in the near future and the women are Muslims hiding from the state police. Production history: Burton Taylor Theatre, 2007.

The Bigger Picture
“We're not here because of nationalist principles or any kind of deeply held beliefs, so we'll never have that to fall back on. It's never our country, our home. And it wasn't our war. Because you can't own a war, can you? You're just there.” March 2003. Hot shot war correspondents Josie Bracewell and Elliot Harvey arrive in their room at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Kuwait City. They are “embedded” reporters, attached to a British military hospital during the invasion of Iraq; Ambitious, driven and utterly committed to the story of a war that is all their very own as it breaks on the horizon. More or less. Josie is experienced, deeply proud of her career achievements and committed to war reporting. She has left behind a young daughter and a husband for the first time to come here. Elliot is just as hungry to chase that story, but less experienced, exasperating Josie as he blunders his way through their first days together. Over the next few weeks however it is becomes clear that they are victims of a siege of incompetence, inexperience and sheer bad luck as they remain trapped in their hotel room. It is not dramatic or life threatening events keeping them prisoner but the little petty everyday nuisances- communication errors, paper work and red tape. This unexpected time to reflect brings Josie face to face with changed priorities, and she finds she longs to be safe at home with her family. Meanwhile, celebrity front liner Dominique Darosa blasts a stream of news reports through their television screen as the war carries on without them. But Elliot’s luck is improving. A chance encounter with Dominique leads to an alliance that could change his career forever. While Josie’s commitment to the project dissolves, Elliot must face a decision – abandon the hell of their hotel bedroom, or remain loyal to Josie? Finally, Josie persuades Dominique to take him with her, leaving her free to return home to the family she desperately misses. This is not a war story. It is a story for anyone who believes that we can only truly understand the things that impact directly on our lives. On those rare occasions when we do open our eyes, the bigger picture is often not what we expected.

The Karzy Brigade
In 1952 four young National Servicemen are digging latrines in the Army training grounds of Luneburg Heath, Germany. The arrival of an attractive WVS worker causes some consternation. The Amateur Stage wrote: “It is a well constructed play and clearly written with every attention to the manners of its day. What emerges is an often humorous but sometimes sad look at the routine of the lives experienced by so many fifty years ago. The text is well punctuated by the barber shop type singing of The Whiffenpoof Song and, with its ‘ruder’ lyrics reminiscent of Oh What A Lovely War; I don’t want to be a soldier.” An ideal piece for any Society fortunate enough to have four young males in its membership or for University productions.

What's on Your Mind - comedy of the absurd by George Freek
Seven zany characters converge on the living room of an ordinary middle class house. All the characters are written as humorous over the top caricatures of normal people. Throughout the play, the fact that many of the characters have been “at” the local Sanitorium, “Sidcup” is mentioned. The play begins when a young man, Joseph, brings a rumpled middle aged man, Ethelbert to his home, where both his parents and wife, Lanny, a professional wrestler live. Both Joseph and Ethelbert have been “at” Sidcup. From the start, it is obvious that Ethelbert does not want to be there. All Ethelbert wants to do is to go back to Sidcup to find his missing shoes. Ethelbert is then thoroughly alarmed to find that Joseph’s wife, thinks that Ethelbert is her previous husband, “Bertie. “ Joseph’s parents, Maxine and Elmer also appear to be completely mad and alarm Ethelbert further. When a young couple, Theo and Ruthie arrive at the house, it adds confusion to the mayhem. Theo grew up in the house and wants to show it to Ruthie. Little does he know that his mother, Maxine still lives there with her new husband, Elmer. This play won the Eastern Illinois University New Play Competition last year (under the former title ‘THE ROAD TO SIDCUP’) and was subsequently performed as a staged reading at Eastern.

The show begins but then there is an unexpected power cut and the group are so desperate for light that they are forced to let Granddad show his slides while they improvise with well-known songs and scenes around them. In the second act we see the young granddad follow his dad to the front in the First World War via the songs of that era. The majority of the songs used in this piece are out of copyright making it very economical to perform.

A Contemporary Christmas Carol - a modern day Scrooge by Mark Mcquown
In modern day Beverly Hills, high powered Talent and Literary agent Elgin Scroge goes about his daily business running the shop with his one employee, Bob Cricket. It is the Christmas season of the year and Bob wants to leave early so he can buy Christmas presents for his family and Elgin finally lets him go with comments about how Elgin is left again to run the business. The day turns to night and Elgin, who lives in his agency, pulls out the Murphy bed and prepares to go to sleep. In the middle of the night he is wakened by sounds from the Spirit of Christmas past played by a puppet. The spirit takes Elgin back in time and allows him to see how the past has formed his present situation. The play follows the Dickens story with the Spirit of Christmas present and Christmas future, both puppets, bringing Elgin’s life to a full circle and making him realize that he has not been the man he thought he was. The play is an updated version of, A Christmas Carol, including most of the cast from the original story. Mark Mcquown is an award winning playwright and screenplay writer.

A Good Boy (Someone Great version)
A Good Boy – Synopsis “It is impossible to fight the past; no matter how much I try, the past will always win.” –Vocoda In a small studio flat in east London a young couple try to come to terms with a universal issue that many of us go though at some point and to some degree and yet find it hard to talk openly about. While many can accept this more sexual society that we live in, others, like Sam, can find it difficult to understand and to cope with its consequences. What follows is a journey into the self-destructive behaviour of curiosity and the effect it can have on a long and loving relationship. It all starts with one simple question, a question no-one would give a second thought to, but for Sam its just the beginning of a downward spiral for the need to learn more about his fiancé past, this need grows within him and begins to have a deverstating effect on their plans for the future, the only way he knows how to vent his frustrations and limitations on the subject, is by self-harming, which crates it own problems. “A Good Boy” does not offer any answers, but it stands as a warning.

Aldous remembers - a romantic two act play by Paul Hood
Aldous Bentley has a problem: he is prone to dangerous sleep walking and forgetfulness. His memory often eludes him; he can’t remember his wedding day, or precious moments he’s accumulated in his life. Now, after one year of marriage to his beloved wife Wanda, he often fails to remember anything that involves their time together. One night during a small gathering at the home of their longtime friend’s Vance and Lisa Shante’ Aldous confesses to Vance in the kitchen that because of his inability to remember significant moments with Wanda, he feels he may not be in love with her, and that she is the wrong woman. Meanwhile in the living room Wanda confides in Lisa that she too is not sure she married the right man, and that his fleeting memory and odd sleep walking has smothered the fiery passion she once had for Aldous. With lost memories from Aldous and growing frustration from Wanda, will the Bentley’s love survive this early test in their marriage? Lovers of fine wine, the Shante’s and Bentley’s soon discover the complications involved in matrimony. Only time and the partaking of fine libations bought from their meeting place of Ithaca, New York, a place for which both couples share fond memories, will tell in this touching drama as each come upon revelations in their marriages. Aldous remembers, a drama layered with humor and honesty examines the connection of love and memories, and how we deal with the potential realities of losing people we cherish in our lives and the moments we spend with them.

ANOTHER FINE MESS
Stephen and Phil dream of being Stan and Ollie. But their cabaret act is as close as they can get and real life intrudes upon their dreams. In the flat shared with Meg, Stephen's girlfriend, the boys are preparing for their big break - a professional cabaret slot as Laurel and Hardy - but past relationships cause problems and a revelation from Phil throws everything into confusion. Will they make it to the show, or will the strain prove too great? Their problems link with favourite Laurel and Hardy scenes which our characters re-enact and which throws light on the contrast between the charming innocence of Stan and Ollie and the hard reality of Stephen, Phil and Meg. Through the course of the play we see many scenes recreated from Laurel and Hardy films including Thicker than Water, Blotto, and The Flying Deuces. Of course, from the film Way Out West, we have those favourite song and dance numbers, The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and Commence your Dancing.

Assumption Eve by Michael W. Thomas
Assumption Eve: a play in four acts by Michael W. Thomas, 2006. This is, allegedly, a true report of a miracle which occurred in the vicinity of Worcester in the opening years of the thirteenth-century. It is inscribed in the annals of St. Wulfstan, Worcester’s patron saint. I am grateful to Mr. Charles Mundy, Heritage Information Officer at Worcester Museums, and Dr. Richard Holt, for providing me with the outline of the miracle and for commenting on drafts of the play. The central character is Thomas of Eldersfield, a free tenant in of the manor of Eldersfield, near Tewkesbury. He was raised at Tirley, and his father, Estmer, lives with the rest of the family at Northway, near Ashchurch. Act 1 introduces Thomas and his family, but also introduces the event which drives the whole action: Thomas’s affair with the wife of Lord Robert of Northway. We follow Thomas’s life and see how he, his family and his livelihood are imperilled by his persistence in the affair. For two years it is the staple of gossip in the locality. But finally, under pressure from his family, Thomas formally declares all to his confessor. But the Lady of Northway, whom I have named Isobel, will not be cast aside so easily. In Act 2, on the death of Lord Robert, she strives to reopen the affair, declaring that there is now no bar to marriage between Thomas and herself. Though at the mercy of conflicting passions, Thomas holds to his resolve to have nothing further to do with her. Spurned, she finds her love for him turning to hatred. She marries another man, George, who--finding his fortunes giddily elevated by the match--plays the role of Lord with an arrogance that befits his ego. He too conceives a loathing for Lady Isobel's former lover. Born of envy, it makes him a biddable pawn in her game of revenge. The climax of the Act occurs on Whit Sunday, 1217. George and Thomas encounter each other at a tavern (which I have set in Tewkesbury). Goaded by Lady Isobel's new husband, Thomas finally retaliates, striking George a minor blow with his axe. Inevitably, George wastes no time in proclaiming that Thomas acted with malice aforethought, with dire consequences for the free man. In Act 3, Thomas is tried at Worcester in 1221 before a local jury and in the presence of the King’s circuit justices. The jury, well bribed by the new Lord of Northway, find in his favour, and--as was the custom of the times--the real trial is then decided on: in this case, a duel between George and Thomas. This occurs a few days later. George is triumphant in the duel, gravely injuring Thomas. This is not through any expertise on his part. Instead, having accused Thomas of a felony after the tavern brawl, he has been able to throw him in prison numerous times between that episode and the arrival of the King’s justices. Each time, Thomas has found it more difficult and costly to have himself freed. Fearful for his family, tormented by all that has happened since his affair, he is an easy prey for proud George. The climax of the Act sees George--in a viciously ironic display of mercy--deciding to have Thomas castrated rather than killed. In Act 4, Thomas, barely alive, is removed to the precincts of St. Wulfstan’s Hospital (now the Commandery Civil War Centre, Worcester). Niceties of morality being what they were at the time, his offences (adultery and attacking the Lord of Northway) mean that he cannot be taken in and cared for. However, a lady takes pity on him and tends him where he lies, inside a rough-and-ready tend constructed by his father, Estmer. On ‘Assumption Eve,’--the feast of the assumption of the Virgin Mary--Thomas has a wondrous vision, involving the Virgin and St Wulfstan together. It is then that the miracle occurs--and Thomas experiences a full ‘restoration.’ As for what befalls the Lady of Northway and her preening Lord--that, too, will be revealed. Michael W.

Boots is a play in two acts, roughly an hour and fifteen minutes long, about a man in his mid-20s (Winston) who returns home after spending a short period in prison in Texas for kidnapping his baby son from his ex-girlfriend. He decides to set down roots, get married and get a steady job, and fight her for custody in court. The problem is that his widowed mother wants to sell the house so she can live with her new gentleman friend and his best friend wants to marry the same girl he has pegged to be his bride. Winston puts his plan in motion and screws everyone and everything up. He scares off the realtor and her prospective buyers. He fights with his kid brother who comes back from college to talk some sense into him on behalf of their mother. He cheats with his best friends girlfriend and encourages his drug habit, which ends up costing the poor guy his life. And while he claims to be interested in taking care of his younger brothers' cats while his brother is away in college, he turns out to be a poor cat-sitter and George runs off and Boots dies while chewing on a live electric wire. Finally at the end, he realizes that he has been mistaken all along and has something of an epiphany, brought on by the sound of his brother's distinctive laugh. George: A Memoir is a fifteen minute (mostly) comic monologue delivered by Winston about rescuing George from the streets of NYC over a Thanksgiving weekend when she was left behind as the family moved from the city to their new house in the suburbs. It's quite funny and illuminates the main play. In the old days they used to have "curtain raisers"---this is kind of a curtain dropper. It's a play about rebellion, about moving from rebellion to something more constructive, about a person's slide into degeneracy and his moral regeneration.

Cinderella
A basic take on the traditional pantomime. It was first performed under my direction in January 2009 and is noted for being the inaugural production of the Southfields Theatre Group from SW London. It played to packed houses to audiences ranging to a few months to octogenarians so it is pretty well suitable for anyone. WE did have one person complain that the character of Cinderella was demeaning to cleaners but, well, there's always one! The script has a few local references that can easily be changed. The music used in the production can be your own choice or feel free (when you've purchased a licence) to get in touch and I'll let you know what we used.
Author: PAUL, SimonCast (at least 11): 11 parts, any apart from the Cinderella and Buttons can be cross-gender. The ugly sisters particularly should be played by males, preferably large, rugby-playing types!

CRYSTAL
A full length play ,without intermission, is set in a suburban community of eastern Pennsylvania. The entire story takes place in an abandoned wood shed, circa 1981, where the body of a 16 year old girl is left under the floor of the shed by an acquaintance who attends the same high school she does. The young man, named Andy, brings two of his close friends to view Crystal and in the process, to have them acknowledge his importance. When he returns the next day with his friends, Ralph and Joey, he discovers however that the hole under the floor is empty. Crystal reappears soiled and livid from outside. What is revealed for the next couple of days are the problems that these youngsters are forced to face which has led them to go beyond the acceptable limits of society. We see Andy, who is 17 and overweight, having a disdain for women in general and in part, for himself. We see Ralph, another 17 year older, trying to protect his feelings by building an emotional wall around himself, and Joey, who is the youngest of the three, trying to dispel the image of being a nerdy, all American boy. Finally we come to Crystal, whose severe problems at home has caused her to run away and eventually to kill herself in pursuit of love. We learn of these characters gradually as these teen's interactions portray and mirror how each of their personalities is shaped by nothing more than our society's own callous attitudes on life.

Deliverance
This play is a costume drama based on part of the life of Joan of Arc, exploring the conflict between religious faith, skepticism and religious bureaucracy, with a little politics thrown in. It presents quite nicely the stress-induced myopia or shortsightedness of the rulers of a country when fortunes have turned against them, in this case battles lost against the English invaders. The biography of Joan of Arc is generally well known, but the details of her life and exploits differ from one historian and chronicler to another. What? When? How? and at times, Who? are matters which the experts have argued about for years. This play, in which the author employs poetic licence in regard to certain characters and situations, is a fascinating insight into the dramatic events in Medieval France.

Dreamtime
The story is inspired by the murders of Dartmouth professors Half and Susanne Zantop, January 2001. Two high school boys from Vermont came to their home under false pretenses and murdered them for a hundred dollars in cash. The murders were, of course, notorious. They followed on the heels of the Columbine murders and since then there has been practically an epidemic of senseless murders by young people in the USA. This is a play script about teen murder. There’s a fine line between a dream and reality, well that is until there isn’t… that is until your dreams no longer serve their purpose as a subconscious escape and instead prey on your psyche: creating a world you can neither inhabit nor feel a firm part of. Willy and Noah are young white youths, trying to both define themselves and make a stamp on their society. They dream of joining the American Nazi party. Both boys have dreams – they need something to make them stand out. They dream of doing something big. They dream of it day and night. Until it becomes hard to tell whether they’re awake or dreaming… Both Willy and Noah tread the barrier in this play about the consequences of blurring the lines that separate delusions from actuality. Was their sense of self elevated in their dream state? Were Noah and Willy just plain bored with their reality? Or did they forget where in the world they truly belonged, when they made a choice that would affect them and two German professors? Dreamtime explores what happens when two doubtful aspiring American Nazi youths take certainty and uncertainty into their hands…and the cost of human life in between.

Early Liberty - an American drama by Rita Anderson
“Life is about paying attention to the right things,” but what happens when the people and places you consider safe aren’t? What is “safe” and who spells “Home”? When Mark Haywood follows the beacon into Lighthouse Cove nothing is what it seems. But if Mark’s world is falling apart—despite increasingly-frantic efforts to keep it together, then the hotel proprietor and his family need a special kind of rescue from each other. Just what will it take for Selma to grow up and for Mark to wake up? Can these dueling opposites save the hotel and find a way to be together? Set in 1985 on the Atlantic shore, Early Liberty explores the limits and boundlessness of love and hope, and the darker side of what it means to dream. Early Liberty is a play about false fronts and true love, about crossed wires and yardsticks we never measure up to. This dramatic love story is especially relevant now, especially as regards women’s status, and the parallels between the idealized Reagan Era and the “world as it is today” to reveal that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Early Liberty was produced at Texas State University (Lab Theatre) January 31-February 3, 2013.The play has already been workshopped but the author is open to minor changes, authorized in writing.

ELIAS ASHMOLE VERSUS THE WIDOW by Joel Kaye
In a London courtroom a man and a woman do battle for the sake of putting a name on a museum. He claims the right to its collection by law. She accuses him of trickery, and almost everything else, up to witchcraft. It is literally a fight to the death for recognition, for fame, for honour and the name on a world-famous institution which exists in Oxford to this day. The action takes place around the restoration of Charles II to the English throne, with the anxieties and ambitions of that period, and much of the text is based on seventeenth century documents. The issues, though, are of today – ambition, loyalty, privilege and the position of women in society. . There are twelve speaking parts, some of which can be doubled, and particularly strong roles for women. There is also a folksong, which arises naturally out of events, but gives the key to one of the characters. Staged reading in Oxford June 2013. See web page for audience reactions.

Enter Love - a modern musical by Lynn Lupold
Enter Love is set in an international airport, located in a large city. The production consists of a series of encounters—with dialogue and music—that take place between an assortment of couples and individuals at various locations—arrival and departure concourses, waiting lounges, baggage check, a coffee shop, restaurant, observation deck, and the central location, a bar—in the airport. During the course of the production the audience witnesses various manifestations and stages of romantic relationships as the characters pass through on their way from one flight to another, and many times from one delayed, canceled, or redirected journey to another, or the continuation of a relationship full of, as pilots like to say, “Chop.”. “Enter love”….was first on stage at Civic Theatre in Lafayette, IN and then at the Quest Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. This show started out as cabaret production at the Cabaret in Indianapolis, IN and it grew into a more complete musical of vignettes set in an airport which provided opportunity for couples and strangers to interact.

Flowers
FLOWERS synopsis The stage is a framed painting of a still-life of a composition of flowers, with a pipe in an ashtray, and a white statue behind a veil. The action starts with a sneeze that is heard behind the curtain as a consequence of the dust raised by a chamber maid who is cleaning. The flowers in the painting are the characters of the play. Many years before, they discovered that they had voices and were capable of thinking, feeling, and discussing. From then on, they spent years gossiping, but mainly repeating over and over the reasons for which they were included in the painting. The story is very simple. Elisabeth (Sissi), wife of the Austrian Kaiser Franz Josef 1°, after some years of marriage was bored by court life and so went around looking for excitement. It is not proved that she had lovers but there was a lot of gossip. At this same time, a painter was practicing his art in the mountains of Trentino (formerly the Austrian region of South Tyrol); where he found an ideal climate and landscapes for his art; he lived in an hotel and during that time he fell in love with the daughter of the hotel owners, Margherita (Daisy). She reciprocated with warmth and a loving devotion. After some time, the guests of the hotel – most often members of the Viennese high-society who loved the Trentino mountains very much - encouraged him to show his paintings in Vienna where there was a real center for the arts, merchants and so on. The painter arrived in the big city, quite sad for having to leave Margherita – even if only temporarily - and she felt the same. In the first weeks they exchanged a lot of letters. The only comfort was the big success of his paintings, many of which represented the beloved Margherita. But his fate was to change: one day the Empress arrived as a visitor to the exhibition, and asked the painter if he would accept to do her portraits. He agreed, and day by day fell in love with the beautiful Sissy. She responds in a very cryptic way; with an exchange of flowers, each of them connected with a particular meeting or moment. As a matter of fact, each flower has a short story to tell, a little piece of this love story. The painter, at a point in time, receives two pieces of news: the end of his story with Sissi, and the suicide, for love lost, of Margherita. So he decides to do a painting of his whole life, with the metaphor of flowers (and pipe); and the statue, which is Death. (remember E.L. Masters: “there is something into Death like love itself...”). This is what the flowers and other figures in the painting are relating. With a little “coup-de-theatre”; at the end of the first act, when the chamber maid comes back to clean the room, they succeed in returning to their original position before she arrives. But at the final curtain, they aren’t quick enough. Therefore in the painting they assume a different position. The painting shown to the audience after the curtain falls, represents the new positions. The meaning being that memories (and it happens very often) can change slightly during time and there is, in consequence, a new image of the reality.

Holiday island
Holiday Island – a British comedy drama, is set in a typical if superior quality holiday hotel in a popular tourist resort, such as Tenerife. A group of newly arrived holiday-makers are just convening in the lobby. They are kitted-out in predictably loud holiday apparel, starting out as a pretty anonymous-looking bunch. As they check-in however, slowly getting to know each other and going about the business of enjoying their holidays, we detect the emergence of their true characters. The cultural and social aspects of their lives though interesting, are not nearly as captivating as their psychological depths. A poignant, yet funny British comedy drama that shows people as they really are when they are away from the comfort of home.

Joe's Wood
When I was a little boy, there was a place we knew as Joe’s Woods because of a First World War soldier who had made his home there. Some called him Joe the Navvy, as he had come to our village with a gang of men to create a slip road that would join two roads together. When the work had been completed he had nowhere to go, so he made his home in a disused mine’s powder shed in the local woods, hence the name of Joe’s Woods. His only companions were Peggy, his mongrel dog, and his friend who we knew as Whistling Jim, another solder of that war, and two young girls who were unafraid of Joe and Jim.

After delivering the papers young Blythe and Osmond accidentally witness the judiciary talking with what they believe to be the devil before he disappears in a flash of light. Frightened by what they have witnessed they take to their heels straight to Francis Nurse’s farmhouse a few miles from town. Not waiting for an invitation to enter they burst into the living room where Francis, Adger Rising, his solicitor, the two younger sons, Nathan and Breca Nurse, were discussing the appeal. Shocked by the uninvited intrusion Breca and Nathan restrain the intruders. Shaking in the brother’s grasp they shout out the sight they witnessed. On hearing the boy’s story Adger Rising, a well-respected solicitor and friend of the Governor Gourlie, has never lost a case, recognises how this can work in the appeals favour, offers to take the boys to the Governor. As they leave the mother of Blythe enters worried to why her son has not returned home after delivering Nurse’s appeal. Francis tried to reassure her both Blythe and Osmond, had already left and are in good hands and health. The words not long passed his lips when Goody Truman, the mother of the young Osmond, entered screaming at the top of her voice demanding to know the whereabouts of her son. At Goody Truman’s request following not far behind is the Marshall Herrick, to ascertain the whereabouts of the boys. Francis continually refuses to divulge the boy’s whereabouts leaving Marshall Herrick no choice but to arrests him for kidnapping, at great protest from Breca and Nathan. In the courtroom Francis, to the annoyance of Judge Hawthorn, refuses to answer to the case until his solicitor arrives. It was only at the end of the courts patience Adger Rising arrives with the Governor Gourlie, who dismisses the court and puts Judge Hawthorn, Deputy Governor Danforth, Reverend Hale, and Cheever, the court recorder, on trial. Adger Rising calls witnesses from Rebecca Nurse’s trial who testify that Deputy Governor Danforth and fellow accused held dread over them, should their testimonies not lean towards Rebecca’s guilt. Governor Gourlie threatened the defendants with removal from court if there continual interruptions did not cease. Finally found guilty and sentenced to the gallows. Francis Nurse, a man of God, had no stomach for more public hanging and intervened suggesting a sentence of banishment, without nourishment or weapons of defence, to a place where devil worship and witchery were a way of life, so that they either converted the people to the Good Book, or joined inhabitants in the ways of the Devil. Only time would tell if they truly repented or had indeed adopted the ways they have been found guilty of.

With pressures from promoters and the cage fighting public willing them to fight each other in the Pulvis; with added crushing burdens from society and relationships, over a 9-month period Lee and Chris unexpectedly forge a deeper connection jeopardising everything they fought and bled for with disastrous results and a life-changing conclusion. “LIFE’S PULVIS” is a tragic romantic drama for people who are afraid of being who they really are. It is a quest for truth, self-acceptance no matter what background you originate from or the colour of your skin.

The daughter, in her attempt to deal with her tortured past, uses many devices: alcohol, seclusion, and hotlines, all of which prove to be anything but successful. Her father, a very important man in the local political scene, has spent two years in therapy, and two years away from his daughter, before his attempt at reconciliation. The young woman’s mother, knowledgeable of the relationship between her husband and daughter, kept silent out of fear and ignorance.

My Brother's Keeper
Chosen from 150 scripts in the Pittsburgh New Play Festival, we see two brothers who were equally talented but one went away to become a successful writer while the other, a teacher/musician, stayed home to look after the ageing father. The play finds the writer returning to his childhood home where his dad is lying comatose after a stroke. The writer can't accept that his dad won't wake up and tempers rise as he clashes with the musician's conformist wife. At the end of the first act there is a dramatic decision to be made - the situation looks very bleak for dad so what are they going to do ? The musical brother makes the suggestion that everyone has been thinking but no-one dared to say - it would be so easy just to turn off dad's life support - but which of them would do such a thing? In the second act the writer learns a lot of home truths about himself as he is made by his girlfriend to face up to his own position of having been an absent father when he meets the son that he hasn't seen for years. This script has now been published in Holland and Belgium by Pieter Vink & Co.

Oh, Bloody Health
Lawrence, the chief consultant at The Cooder Hall Health Spa battles to stop all from falling apart, quite literally, when three NHS “overspill” referral patients arrive for some routing surgical procedures. Nips, hips, tucks and in-growing toenails along the way as the tormented clinic proprietor attempts to steer the new arrivals; a retired navy man and two tough old birds away from his paying clientele; which include some well pampered socialites and one rather reluctant TV talent show pop prodigy. Its Basil Fawlty meets Jackie Stallone meets Ena Sharples in this brand new comedy by local author Ian Bedford. “…it’s a tax break, it’s like money in the bank, and goodness knows we could do with that right now. The NHS overspill is potentially a very lucrative marketplace. Check-out check-ups, this is the future Randolph; I mean, at the rate the health service is shrinking you’ll soon be able to get your bunions removed right there at blessed shoe shop…” The passing of the National Insurance Act in 1946 created the structure of the Welfare State. The government also announced plans for a National Health Service that would be, "free to all who want to use it." The National Health Service was expensive and in April 1951, the Labour Chancellor of the Exchequer, Hugh Gaitskell, placed a shilling on every prescription and announced that people would have to pay half the cost of dentures and spectacles. As a result of this action, Aneurin Bevan resigned from the government.

OUT OF CONTROL
What would you do if you suddenly found out that your every word, every action, every thought, and every desire was dictated by someone else? Each of us, at one time or another, has wanted to play God, to be in total and absolute control of our own lives. We want the freedom and power to be able to plan our itinerary to the last detail and not have to answer to anyone. That’s one extreme. The other extreme is to have absolutely no control over anything that you do. To live out your life along a path that had already been predetermined for you. know that something good will happen and you’ve not had anything deliberate to do with it. To know that something bad will happen and you’ve not the ability to change it. Meet Julius Roman, young, successful, ambitious, lucky in love as well as in fortune. He is having the time of his life with a thriving business and a beautiful girlfriend named Elena. Sure, he has some problems. Among them, a wife whom he wishes to divorce and a career-minded girlfriend who will not commit to the relationship. Luckily, he has a good friend, Harry, who is into meditations and can offer him advice. Along the way he comes to realize that our worst nightmare scenario has just become for him a hellish reality. Through a chance encounter, he meets up with a novel fiction writer named Ipathema Robathem whose manuscript he reads and whose main character’s life he recognizes as mirroring his own. Although skeptical at first, he eventually accepts the fact that Ipathema is indeed his “creator: as indeed she is also Harry and Elena’s. In essence she IS his God, having set into motion through the power of her words, the series of events that will dictate the entire course of his life. When Julius reads that his wife will eventually give birth to another’s baby, his girlfriend will leave him and that he himself will ultimately come to an untimely end, he demands that the manuscript be changed before Ipathema submits it for publication. After publication, his fate will be permanently sealed. When Ipathema refuses, claiming the integrity of her work would be violated, Julius hides the manuscript from her, knowing that it’s her only copy and threatens to keep her stranded in “his world” forever. It also doesn’t help matters any that Ipathema has developed affectionate feeling towards Julius, whose character was based on a former lover. How the two attempt to outsmart and outmaneuver each other in an effort to regain control of what each perceives to be his/her inherent right of survival makes for a very intense conflict with very high stakes. OUT OF CONTROL as written by Fred Rohan Vargas is an offbeat, suspenseful, drama-comedy that deals with the question of “Whose life is it anyway?” in an unusual way and brings the play to a unique resolution.

Pigeons - a two act drama by Lee Dorsey
“Pigeons” is a two-act drama about a man named Lester, in his thirties, who is about to inherit a fortune left to him by his dead grandmother on the condition that he is married before he is thirty five years old. Unfortunately, Lester is a recluse who dropped out of high school in his senior year after failing a course in English. He is completely obsessed with breeding a champion homing pigeon. He spends the better part of his days on the roof of his Philadelphia home with his pigeons. Lester is supported by his sister, Sistine, a Catholic nun who supports him by bringing food everyday as otherwise he just wouldn’t cope. Sistine decides to take the matter of Lester being married into her own hands. She brings home a single young woman who works as a clerk at the convent. Lester has a problem in that he hasn’t kissed a female for years. We learn as the play progresses what caused this trauma in Lester’s life. The young woman’s mission is directed with the nun’s encouragement to get Lester over his phobia and become his wife.

QUITTERS
A 70 minute comedy drama telling the story of a dysfunctional smoking cessation class Every day Justin fights the nation’s love affair with tobacco. He fights it with diligence, any way he can- through seminars, workshops and group sessions; Teaching, learning, listening. Helping his clients overcome their fears of failure. Helping them to pull together and focus on this one simple yet important goal of stopping smoking. For after all- What is there to give up? Poor health? Foul breath? Poverty? If anything they will be set free, free from the confines of their antisocial addiction! If they can achieve this they can achieve anything! Each have their own reasons for being there- Katherine, fresh out of her latest disastrous fling and determined to change, Roz, fighting to save a marriage and Siobhan, fighting a losing battle with loneliness. But all hope for a new start, as they turn, like children, to the man who will save them from themselves. But what can Justin realistically offer his clients? While his own marriage deteriorates, he starts to fixate on Tamara, the fiercely pro smoking, cynical barmaid. As they journey through this perverse charade of enforced group therapy, rivalries develop, attachments are formed and secrets are revealed. Mostly they just miss that confidence giving Elixir that they have all in their own separate ways come to rely on to fight insecurity and depression, to anesthetise the pain of every day living. If this is “freedom” was confinement really so bad? Events take a dark turn when Katherine, fuelled by neurosis, desperation and nicotine withdrawal, hijacks the group and takes Justin hostage at knifepoint. The pressurised situation forces Tamara and Justin to recognise their feelings for one another, while Siobhan chooses this moment to blurt out that she’s not actually a smoker- She’s just there to make friends. Roz meanwhile has been nursing her own terrifying truth since the start. Who will succeed? Who will fail? Who will succeed and then fail six months down the line, succeed again the following New Year and then just restrict themselves to holidays and weekends? Quitters is inspired by research into Together the NHS group therapy service for smokers, with interviews from smoking cessation graduates, representatives and trained councillors from the charities QUIT and ASH, as well as my own experiences of batting this infuriating, wonderful and suicidal habit. This is a story for anyone- smokers, non smokers and those trapped somewhere in between, about what holds people, sane people, to the insanity of addiction.

Sassafras Cannon
Sassafras Cannon is a civil-war black comedy play highlighting and satirizing the follies of human nature, at its base. Featuring a set of characters ranging from the offbeat Bloodworth family, holding the reigns to a chocolate manufacturing corporation like the world has never seen, a lampooning version of President Jefferson Davis, a butler who seems a bit, well, evil, and even down to investors from overseas, all whom make their appearances, the show exaggerates America’s time-tested fascination with all characters wild and strange, all while twisting history into it’s own new version, all in a style reminiscing to the days of vaudeville shows and the Ziegfeld Follies. Did you know that cocaine, now considered a drug, was in the original mix of Coca-Cola? Did you know that Jefferson Davis is rumored to have been fleeing from the Union at the time of his capture in his wife’s clothing? These are all facts and rumors that the play uses to perpetuate it’s story and satire, combined with intentional historical inaccuracies and rumors. Attendance at the production is recommended for those with both a sense of humor and a grasp of history.

Snow White and the seven Ugly Sisters
Once upon a time, there was a wicked queen with an evil sidekick of a magic mirror. She was also the most beautiful woman in the world. Unfortunately this didn’t bode well for anyone else who was well, even remotely good looking. When the Princess Snow White blossoms into beauty, and the mirror informs the queen that she is shortly (well next Tuesday to be exact) to move to second place, the queen decides that someone else needs to take drastic action, and she sends her huntsman to kill the princess and bring back her spleen. Since she doesn’t actually know what a spleen is, Snow White and the Huntsman fool the queen, and Snow White runs away into the deep forest. There she meets the seven ugly sisters who kindly take her under their wing when they hear the queen’s evil plan. In the meantime, the mirror has informed the evil queen that actually, Snow white is still alive and kicking in the woods. The Queen decides to do her in with the aid of a magical nuclear cigar, delivered by Royal Mail. The seven ugly sisters leave for work as air hostesses on Goldonian airways, leaving Snow White alone in the cottage with strict instructions not to accept any multicoloured apples from strange old women. Snow white is interrupted by the arrival of the ever so sexy (but boy does he know it) Prince Valiant, who is Revolta’s (one of the ugly sisters) brother. He brings an invitation to his engagement party for his sister, Revolta. Snow White is surprised to find that he not only has no idea who his bride to be actually is, but that she should count herself lucky to have him as a husband! He tries to flirt with her but fails horribly and leaves, but not before accepting a package from Royal Mail for her (The postman is the queen in disguise) containing two nuclear cigars. When the seven sisters arrive back from work, they’re all excited by the package, but when Snow White lights the cigar for Hideosa, it backfires, sending her into a magical sleep. The girls summon Valiant who happily kisses Snow White and wakes her up. He in turn is amazed to find that she actually doesn’t want to marry him on the spot. They are interrupted by the arrival of the queen who has decided to kill Snow herself (properly this time.) The sisters save the day by lighting the other cigar and aiming it at the queen, sending her into a magical sleep. Snow White becomes the new queen of the magical kingdom and they all live happily ever after. A fun non traditional pantomime filled with cleverly adapted Show tunes and witty dialogue by best selling playwright Claire Demmer. This pantomime would suit a typical drama group where the majority of the players are female – but the sisters can just as easily (and humorously be played by males.) Notes: The author will allow workshopping of the script. All of the songs can be substituted at the director’s discretion. The nuclear cigars can be substituted for any other weapon of choice.

We are taken to St Trollops in the Field in 1934, a private Boarding School for young ladies of excellence. But its a place of whispered secrets, of foreboding, of inedible food. Indeed St Trollops is an enigma... with a mystery, that no one, but no one is allowed to discuss.The very mention of 'the incident' is immediately punished or worse still, frowned upon. The merest suggestion of the question hangs persistently in the air however...' What really happened to all of the first years?' Did they get lost on a nature ramble, or sprout wings and fly south for the winter.. or did Matron get them? Simone Parmentier-Standish; following in a well established family tradition is starting her first year, only to find her single qualification is the fact she has a hyphen in her name. St Trollops boasts an agoraphobic Head Mistress, a true party member Ayrian Frau for a German teacher, an Hungarian groundsman who prides himself on being mistaken for Lon Shanie and a Head Girl for Sports Brian Andrews, who might possibly be a conscientious objector and draft dodger from the "Twattington End Pals Regiment 1916"

The Beginning of Time
During the Black Death, one village has been totally unaffected by plague. The Catchpole’s, an ambitious local family, have taken over the unworked lands of the dead, forcing the villagers to work them, turning the village into a tyrannical place. Chad, a religious charismatic, tries to understand why they, uniquely, have been saved. He concludes that they have been spared to save other sinners. Out of this develops a vicious new religion, where sin has to be physically cut out with knives. The village becomes divided between the two camps until the ‘miracle of the well’. Whilst in quarantine, Richard Catchpole discovers the reason the well became dry. The local landowner had diverted a stream. He quickly re-diverts it. Instead of informing the village of this, Susan Catchpole, the driving force in the family, awaits events. When the ‘miracle’ occurs, she and her family convert to Chad’s new religion, thereby uniting the village under their joint control. As opportunity grows so does ambition. With the village secured they turn their sights on the local city. They intend to sell their produce at grossly inflated prices, the Catchpoles for their own profit, Chad to win souls. The citizenry are hostile. Susan is brought before a magistrate. She however turns this to her advantage. She plays on his hunger persuading him to drop the charges and also to grant her title to Montague’s lands and possessions. After this the Catchpoles no longer need Chad or his religion, which has become very unpopular. They get rid of him thereby increasing their own popularity and their chances of getting away with things, once normality returns. Richard and Peter have however become drunk with power, they use the religion to their own advantage. This forces Susan’s hand, she has them arrested and executes her brother, using the methods of the religion. Through this she succeeds in cowing the city but, having done so, she cannot be seen to be profiting from the situation. She lives the life of a nun, handing control of the religion over to the citizens, thereby implicating them in any excesses. In the process she becomes seen to be a saintly character, the saviour of the city. Having finally redeemed herself she can safely return home and enjoy her new found wealth. But, as she announces her departure, she is bitten by a flea and dies of the plague shortly after returning home.

The Book of Recipes
Florence, 1509. At the end of a short but turbulent life, aged 46 Caterina Sforza lies dying in her palace. For the past 10 years she has been living in reduced circumstance, but only in contrast to the opulence of her previous life. She had lived through troubled times for which she had to some extent been responsible. Born the daughter of the Duke of Milan, she had married wealth and power in the shape of Giralomo Riario, nephew to the pope. It was the pope’s ambition that the Papal States, the Romagna, be united under the control of Giralomo. Caterina shared this ambition and dreamed of becoming the mistress of the Romagna. She fell in love with power and would do anything to get it and hang onto it. This became particularly evident after the assassination of her husband. In the famous ‘legend of the wall’ she betrayed her children. The assassins held her children hostage whilst she held the local fortress, the Ravaldino. When the children’s lives were threatened by Antonio Ordelaffi, she is alleged to have said ‘Fools! Can’t you see, the mould that made them is unbroken. I can make some more!’. This was the start of the breach in her relationship with her oldest and favourite child, Bianca. The breach was further confirmed after a series of events. She wreaked a savage revenge on the assassins after they were finally beaten, a rumour spread that she had been responsible for her husband’s death, her proposed marriage to Antonio and the betrayal of her closest ally Giacomo Feo. So in love with power that she lost sight of the bigger picture and became a hated and very lonely figure. Throughout her life she kept a ‘book of prescriptions’ containing recipes for everything from poisons to cosmetics, in particular cosmetics. As she sunk deeper into the mire she increasingly hid behind a mask of make up. It is only after a sudden realisation that she starts to re-assess her life, she goes into a decline. She dies regretting her life, wanting forgiveness from Bianca.

The Crocodile's Porch
The Crocodile's Porch is a dark comedy set in a lonely subway station at 2 a.m. At rise, we discover a woman and her bicycle hopelessly entangled in a floor-to-ceiling turnstile where she remains trapped. During the long night, in which she is robbed, molested, and left in the dark, she confronts ghosts from her past, danger in the present, and maybe love in her future. The play, which slides between reality and memory, employs a Greek chorus with attitude (made up of lost men and women who live in the subway tunnels). Each chorus member doubles in several roles throughout the play, though not in the traditional sense. Each simply takes up a prop or bit of costume and becomes whatever character the doubling requires, then returns to the chorus. The piece celebrates the determination of human will in a sometimes dark world.

To her amazement he has decided that now the house is paid for, he will stay at home and concentrate on his two hobbies of amateur radio and rearing chickens. In the back yard of his small terraced house he intends to build a multi-layered hen-house and escape there with his radio equipment to listen to radio stations around the world. Having completed the construction, he is out in his shed one night, listening to his radio, when he receives signals that appear to be coming not from Barnsley but from another planet. What do you do if you're the first person to receive such things? Who do you tell? Everyone laughs at him at first until some specialists from London arrive and decide that the signals might actually be genuine. However, the London boffins are so slow in replying that Walter decides to answer the signals himself by building his own rocket to send up examples of life on earth. What will he put in his rocket and with what will he power it ? With methane gas, of course, from the chicken manure!

The Ghosts May Laugh
‘The Ghosts May Laugh' is a play set in a Western Front dug-out on Christmas Eve, 1917. Three British Officers (Jones, Jenkins, and Lewis) are joined by a new young officer (Saunders). At the same time we are told of the recent death of one of their colleague (Miller). The play is centred around the telling of four ghost stories by the main characters. This is prompted by a discovery amongst Miller’s belongings of a prized German helmet. They decide to have a competition to win the helmet and settle on a ‘Canterbury Tales’ storytelling game. Saunders begins by telling of a ghostly encounter he had in Oxford, before joining up. The ghost in question is lonely, reflecting Saunders’ own feelings. Jenkins, sparked by the appearance of a shell-shocked soldier, tells a story based on Kipling’s ‘The Madonna of the Trenches’. Lewis is cajoled into telling his story about a soldier who predicted his own death and was consequently buried alive in a collapsed trench tunnel. Finally Jones completes the game with a tale of his own about how he had believed a trench legend about monsters in no man’s land and ended up killing one of his own soldiers by mistake. Interspersed between the stories are conversations by the Officers about life in the trenches and the nature of the War. There are digressions on the experience of battle, the problems of dealing with the numbers of the dead, the home front, and separation from their loved ones. The characters all represent possible human reactions to coping with the War. Jones is cynical, but we also discover had been sent home with shell-shock. Lewis is meticulous in following orders. Jenkins conceals his fear and horror by getting drunk. The audience is asked therefore to judge how they would behave in such circumstances. Jones finishes the play with a direct attack on the conduct of the War and the belief that there is an afterlife, which (in his view) allows people to perpetuate the killing. The play finishes with Saunders (who represents the audience by now) being asked to decide what they would do in those circumstances. Although the play is set in the 1914-18 war it is really about all wars, and sets up a series of questions and situations which the audience are asked to consider; many of which have direct relevance to the recent war in Iraq.

In the early 20th century, boatloads of Italians emigrated to New York State to start a new life in the land named after one of their own. "The Grandma Show" flashes forward nearly a century to the descendent reality of that dream. Anthony Deficiente is 38, underemployed, overweight, gay, and a virgin. He lives in Gloversville, New York with his Italian grandmother Mary Pescefungo who is 93 and the only other surviving member of the family.

The Homeless Man
This play is about Martin Burk, a petulant old man who is killed in a subway accident when a thief, trying to escape after snatching a woman's purse, runs into him and knocks him off a subway platform and into the path of an oncoming train. However, Martin doesn't really die, in the true sense of the word, since he's still able to see and hear people, but people can't see him. Because of this, Martin is able to learn what people thought of him while he lived. And what he learns is not easy to accept. By what he overhears in coworkers' conversations about him, it seems Martin,was a selfish, grouchy, hateful, old man. Remorsefully, Martin wishes he could change their opinions of him, but how? He's dead, and it's too late to do anything about it...or is it? While walking the streets of New York, Martin encounters a homeless man whom, he later finds out, is a whole lot more than what he seems to be. During a reoccurrence of the incident that caused Martin's demise, the outcome is completely different. Martin is not killed. Instead, the man who runs into Martin is, when he topples into the path of the subway train, and Martin is only knocked to the ground. Still baffled, regarding what's happening to him, Martin encounters the homeless man again. This is when he learns that the homeless man is not at all homeless, or even a normal man, but rather some sort of angel sent here to give Martin the opportunity see how he's living his life...and what people think of him because of it. The end of the story finds Martin being given a second chance at life, and the opportunity to change his ways. Think, "It's a Wonderful Life," meets "A Christmas Carol."

The Neea Room
The core of the play is based on “The Royal Game” a short story by Stefan Zweig. It was the last work he completed before committing suicide in 1942. The original story takes place on a ship on which is travelling the World Chess Champion, Mirko Czentovic. He is an East European orphan brought up under the care of a local priest as he had nominally only the wits and sense of a simpleton, except by accident it is discovered Mirko is a Chess “genius”. At the first sign of wealth attined by playing chess he bites the hand of the priest who fed him and deserts the village that sustained him. Also on the ship is an Austrian who was captured after the Anschluss and imprisoned in solitary confinement by the Nazis to try and obtain secret information from him. To survive he re-plays games of chess in his mind with himself until it seems that he is able to see each and every game of chess imaginable. The two of them are drawn together for a game of chess. Written, as it was, by Zweig when his beloved Europe was solidly under the jackboot a game between low ugly cunning and cultured esoteric thinking, the game could have only one ending. Czentovic wins. For this play Stefan Zweig is inserted into his own story, which not only enhances the link between Zweig and his story but makes the story more human. The short story is opened up and expanded so that it makes a more complete entertainment on the stage. The other main character in the play is chess – a game where within forty moves for black and white there are more possible combinations of moves than there are atoms in the known universe.

The Poetry Machine - a play for children by Revelly Robinson
In this play for older children, an ageing poet is suffering a severe case of writer’s block. The poet comes across a gypsy who promises that a poetry machine will be able to help him/her write by simply placing material in the machine to form a story. The writer takes the machine home and after putting his/her grandchild’s toys in the machine, concocts a story in poetry about a pirate, robot and teddy bear. The poet finishes reading the story to find that his/her grandchild has disappeared, presumably having crept inside the poetry machine. The poet also enters the machine and encounters the characters invented from the previous story, each inhabiting the opposite persona from that of the story. In the quest for his/her grandchild, the poet tries his/her best to comfort the chaotic characters when the gypsy reappears. Blaming the gypsy for the disappearance of his/her grandchild, the gypsy continues to infuriate the poet by speaking in riddles until the poet is finally awoken by his/her grandchild. Back in reality the poet realizes that the machine was not necessary to renew his/her writing and that s/he had the talent all along.

The Power and the Glory
A small village sleeps in the summer sun whilst a war goes on elsewhere. A group of soldiers arrives and are told by their boss that there is to be no trouble and that they have to keep a low profile. Among the soldiers is a young sixteen year-old boy who has just joined up and isn't aware of his unit's past history. Against orders, he meets and falls in love with a local girl. A welcoming dance is held for the troops but then one of the officers is found dead. In the Second Act the senior officer reveals his true colours, encircling the village and doing all he can to find the culprit, even going so far as to have the old priest tortured to reveal what has been said in the Confessional. Eventually he decides to remove all the food to loosen their tongues but things begin to take turn for the worse as the starving villagers revert to their animal nature. It is finally a battle between the power of the bullet versus the glory of the spiritual hope offered by nuns serving the holy communion wafers. This script is ideal for a large drama group or college performance and is a combination of two events that actually took place - one in France and the other in Russia. In the former, soldiers wiped out the whole village and in the latter the communists took all the food in the villages to make the inhabitants submit to communist rule (with frightening results).

The Sins of the Fathers
This is the story of an Uri, an Israeli Engineer who has lost his family in Romania during the war. As reparation after the war, ships are being built in a German dock for the new Israel, and Uri has been sent to overlook some of the work, and is sent to a German family who sometimes take boarders. In the German family, there is a beautiful German girl called Helza, and her illegitimate son Hans. A constant visitor is Helza’s sister Frieda, who still hates the Jews, and makes nasty remarks about Uri. Then there is the Grandmother, who has not been able to speak since the war years, and the mother, Anna, who is a kindly woman. The father was a soldier and disappeared during the war. They believe him to be dead. Uri and Helza become attracted to one another, despite the snide remarks from Frieda, and Helza learns that Uri had had a lover in Israel, who refused to marry him as she was unable to have children due German experiments. Soon Uri and Helza are in love, and together with the boy Hans, are really happy. Uri also recognises that the Grandmother’s inability to speak is psychological, due to interrogation by the Gestapo, and she is able to receive treatment. However, one day, Anna receives a letter which was sent to her previous address, to advise that Hans is coming home, having been released from the Russian prison camp. She has hardly read the letter when an old man arrives, and for a while she does not recognise him as her young husband, Hans, who had left to go to war. Still she welcomes him and he takes up his old position as head of the family. Uri starts having nightmares regarding the time when his father was shot by a German Sergeant when they were rounding up the Jews in the area. This was now long ago, and Uri cannot understand why this incident has suddenly come to the surface of his mind in this way. Until one day, when the father gives his grandson a picture of himself when he was in the army. Young Hans runs to proudly show it to Uri, who recognises the man who shot his father. When Helza is told this, she begs Uri not to leave her. Uri cannot cope with the situation, however, and leaves saying “The sins of the fathers are visited upon the children……”

The Sword of Anathema
Set in the 11th century the play is a fiction based on the Investiture Dispute between Pope Gregory 7th and Henry 4th, king of Germany. It covers the period from Easter 1076 to the following January. It begins with the excommunication of Gregory, engineered by Henry at Utrecht Cathedral. This was in response to his own earlier excommunication by Gregory. At the time Henry was at the height of his powers, having recently seen off a challenge by the German Barons. Gregory however was isolated and friendless, trapped in Rome. Immediately after the excommunication two extraordinary events occurred. On the very same day Utrecht Cathedral burnt to the ground and, shortly afterwards, bishop William, who had conducted the ceremony, experienced a sudden and very painful death. Both were seen by Henry as signs from god, the first of his anger, the second, paradoxically, as vindication. Encouraged by this Henry then embarks on another reckless campaign against the German Barons and this time he loses badly. He becomes isolated, and, being an excommunicate, he is doubly vulnerable. The very authority on which his monarchy rested is undermined thereby. As a result Gregory's power increases, he links up with Germans and with their help he seeks to depose Henry and embarks on a journey to meet with them. Henry's only hope of saving his crown is to meet with Gregory and beg forgiveness. This is the last thing Gregory wants and he does everything to avoid a meeting. His fear is that were he to meet with him he would be forced to lift the excommunication, thereby undermining his own power and potentially restoring Henry's. After a desperate journey, Henry catches up with Gregory in Italy, at the castle at Canossa. Henry then, for three days, prostrates himself in the snow, begging forgiveness, before Gregory is forced to concede, thereby succumbing to his worst nightmare. In the end Henry becomes the victor whilst Gregory is consigned to obscurity. It is a study of the power of forgiveness and how strength can grow from weakness.

TRUSTING HERR SCHICKELGRUBER
It is September 1938. The eyes of the world are on Germany. Two men are in the spotlight - Germany’s dictator Adolf Hitler and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. Hitler is seeking to add to the territories he has already illegally appropriated into the Third Reich. Chamberlain has initiated a dialogue with Hitler to try to find a settlement that will preserve peace in Europe. Drawing on historical sources, the play presents an imagined account of what occurred in private before and after the meetings between the two leaders; in particular Hitler’s intimate, sometimes volatile relationship with his mistress, Eva Braun, and the frank and lively interaction between Chamberlain and his (fictional) shrewd valet, Walter Wright.
