ELSIE AND NORM'S 'MACBETH'  by John Christopher-Wood. June 2010
Elsie and Norm, fed up with playing Trivial Pursuit and watching television, have decided to have a bash at a bit of culture by staging a production of Macbeth in their living-room - playing all the characters between them. Well, all the characters that is except for Banquo (which is played by a large toy panda in a kilt) and his son Fleance (played by a smaller toy panda in a kilt). The hilarious results are guaranteed to set Shakespeare spinning in his grave! This production included one member of the audience taking a cameo role at each performance.

SORRY, I LOVE YOU...  by John Goodrum. March 2010
Helen sits dejectedly on a pavement having just broken up with her boyfriend. The next two people she meets prove to be significant to her life in very different ways: one is a tramp, the other is Jools. A whimsical romantic comedy with a charming twist which suggests that occasionally relationships need a little help - sometimes from the least expected sources.
