    We had the great pleasure of reading this piece as part of our Sunday night play reading. I love this series of plays by Patrick, so imaginative and the perfect production for enthusiastic youngsters!
  • A Daffodilly-Ding-Dong

    Once again, Chris has taken the everyday entity of a flower and turned them into a beautiful collection of characters! This piece needs to be scene simply because its a play that will provide an AMAZING visual as well as the lovely adventure the audience are able to be a part of! Would make a great play for young children to be part of and I can imagine designing it would be an absolute dream!
  • Come Like Shadows

    The thing that stands out for me about this addictive play is the wonderfully poetic language and imagery that Gemma creates from that. It's a story that draws its audience into the point where what comes next is something you NEED to know. It's a haunting piece that creates moments of tension and intrigue in equal measure and keeps you addicted and wanting to know more, right to the very last word! For those who love a spooky tale, this one is for you!
  • Choosing You
    3 Mar. 2024
    Ooooo! That Ending! Our lives are full of choices and sometimes we do find ourselves wondering 'what if'? What if we'd gone right and not left? What if we'd quit that job? What if we'd ended up with a different person? That is what Rachel analyses so brilliantly here. We, as the audience get to see what Aurora's life could have been like, had certain decisions been different. It's not only a fascinating piece to watch but it would be an interesting piece to debate in the pub afterward!

    The pace of the dialogue is mentioned in the initial pages of this script and it rings true right the way through. This fascinating play about relationships, privacy, and how we deal with people in an age dominated by technology and social media offers a great number of discussion points as you become a fly on the wall for this interesting and amusing story as it unfolds. Its a fascinating piece that offers so much to its audience but it also offers a great chance to play six fascinating and very real characters for 20 something performers!
  • Coin Pusher

    This is a piece that will wrench at the heartstrings for all sorts of reasons! Marshall has created characters that you can hear as real and allowed the audience to be a fly on the wall as the innocent perspective of a girl questions 'grown-up things' while the grown-up doesn't see how their addiction is affecting their life and their relationship with their loved ones. It's a powerful and emotional piece that offers plenty of wonderful (albeit sad) moments.
  • Cassandra: A Steampunk Romance
    3 Mar. 2024
    Right from the opening stage directions, my mind's eye was drawn into this amazing world that Chris has created! From there you are presented with a wonderfully constructed epic tale that twists and turns through the worlds of life beyond death, love, vengeance and mystical creatures. Even when read its a play that you can see through your mind's eye and I know that it would make an AMAZING production to watch, direct, design and be a part of! Read it and be astounded by the realms of Chris's imagination!
  • Before You Submit

    Gatekeeping is not exclusively an issue for playwrights, which is one thing I think Brenton has layered into this play very well, the decision from enthusiasm to frustration to anger to abandonment is a path that is all too familiar for any creative and therefore will resonate with a lot of audiences. It's a piece that offers a snapshot of what it's like to be a playwright and is sure to have an audience walking out of a theatre sympathising with those desperate to make it on the creative ladder. A wonderfully real piece!

    YES! In a world where women are still struggling to be heard by certain people and in certain environments, Emily Hageman presents a play that says 'F*ck that!' This is a fabulously powerful piece that presents to the audience exactly how it feels to be a woman in society at times and what can be expected when women decide they aren't going to take it anymore! Brilliantly constructed with the representation of the actions as well as the power behind the dialogue. It offers a powerful and real perspective and for that reason alone needs to be performed!

    Sometimes there's a concern when a piece is an adaption that you NEED to understand the original but this piece couldn't be further from that. Aly has created a powerful piece of theatre loaded with fabulous roles for women and invites the audience to be a part of this particular tale of the journey of women. Its a play that makes you want to go away and know more about its origins but at the same time its fabulous in its own right. If you're looking for a piece to entertain while having something to say, this is for you!
