  • A Beautiful Hiding - a monologue
    15 Mar. 2023
    Secrets can hurt, sometimes they are already known, but maybe they are best hidden. Connie knows her husbands secret he's been holding for years.
    A BEAUTIFUL HIDING is a perfectly titled, profound monologue, a great piece for an actor to work with.
  • Promises (RADIO)
    14 Mar. 2023
    PROMISES is a clever one act play, it leads you on in one direction only to throw you off course. Amber wakes up in a hotel room on her wedding day, suffering from the night before. First a kindly maid comes in but makes far too much noise, before an unwelcome guest makes his appearance.
    No spoilers here, suffice to say this is a well written, heartfelt play. Written for radio, which would work a treat, but I also believe this has plenty of scope to be a stage play with some great effects.
  • A Backstage Mystery
    14 Mar. 2023
    A BACKSTAGE MYSTERY is such an accurate portrayal of a drama group behind the scenes, themselves backstage. We recognise the usual characters, some calm, some panicking, some just not here... but they are brilliant, so they are always forgiven. What I love most about this funny, slick play is the amount of gentle swearing these actors blurt out in their holy setting, and the final line had me laughing out loud!
    Great fun!
  • The Case of Bloody Mary
    14 Mar. 2023
    It takes a brave writer to put Bloody Mary up in court, even if she is responsible for at least four murders! Judge Lucifer proceeds, so you know you're in for a horrific ride in this tense, slick and sometimes darkly funny courtroom drama.
    Then a teenage witness takes the stand and the audience will believe this piece will soften.
    What follows is a revelation, so read this for yourself to see if Mary walks free.....
    Very stylish!
  • Mr. Iverson Takes on Bullying
    14 Mar. 2023
    We need more of BLAKE IVERSON, the man is a legend!
    This play and its sister play are hilarious! Mr Iverson is such a funny character, in this play he takes on the school bully and his tactics are absurd but fantastic.
    More please!
  • The Moonchild
    13 Mar. 2023
    THE MOONCHILD is so sweet, so poetic, so atmospheric and simply beautiful!
    John and Kathy share their first moments of love, when and where better than late at night overlooking the Seine.
    A gorgeous short play!
  • Mr. Iverson
    13 Mar. 2023
    Haha! What a revelation Mr Iverson is! If only he worked at my school all those years ago we would have had a hoot!
    This is one fun short play with a wonderful character.
    I see this as the beginning of a Mr Iverson series, each episode he helps another student through a difficult time, in his own fabulous way!
    13 Mar. 2023
    If ever there was a vodka fueled conversation between two ladies, this is the one! A fun two hander where these women discuss sex, or the lack of it, so they begin to ponder the scenario of a third sex.
    Great fun and perfect references to the legend that was David Bowie!
  • All the Way Down
    13 Mar. 2023
    Lindsay has a talent for creating new worlds in just a few words that take you on unique adventures. Here, Billy and Nora are climbing two rope ladders, but why, where from, and where are they trying to get up to?
    This would make a great performance piece, especially if the set allows for two such ladders to be used.
    This will leave the audience hanging for sure!
  • Backfired (a monologue)
    13 Mar. 2023
    This monologue is so incredibly tense, gritty, scary, yet beautiful in parts, as Anna tells of her life and loves.
    She steals away to meet the boy of her dreams, a car backfires and quickly her whole world has changed.
    A powerful monologue on a subject that should never exist and should never have to be written about.
