A series of seven monologues about love, hate, death, revenge and other serious matters.

The Triumph of Evil
In a race against time, a Swedish aristocrat has to 'deal with the devil' when he enters into negotiation with SS leader Heinrich Himmler in a last minute attempt to liberate thousands of prisoners from the Nazi concentration camps.

Trivial Dispute
Two worlds collide when self made millionaire Trevor, committed Tory and card carrying Brexiteer, suddenly finds himself at odds with a retired academic, the cosmopolitan and liberal minded Ewan.

Iago, an experienced soldier passed over for promotion, plots to wreak dreadful revenge on his commanding officer Colonel Othello. A modern day, modern language adaptation of Shakespeare's play seen from Iago's perspective.

A Strange Romance
​Can you fall in love with someone if you don't know their gender? Casting caution to the wind, Peter’s passion for the sexually ambiguous 'Blue' provokes prejudice and hostility from friends and family in a tale of sexual liberation and shattered taboos.

The New Normal
The year is 2024. British society is riven with division and conflict creating an atmosphere of enmity and distrust. One half of the population despises and derides the other half. Against this background and against all the odds, Dorothy has finally found a new carer.

Marlowe's Ghost
William Shakespeare, is haunted by the ghost of a fellow playwright, assassinated nearly a quarter century before. “Two things motivate men above all else, the desire for immortality and the desire for revenge.”

Given the chance, would you choose to be immortal by uploading your consciousness to the cloud? Transhuman explores issues of mortality, identity and personality - challenging our notions of what it means to be human.

Carla, one of that rare breed of women, who harbours a powerful aversion for children, is hoping to save her old friend Roger from being drawn into the clutches of Sue, a woman who desperately wants to 'start a family' (as she puts it).

“A remarkably purposeful piece of writing.This is a self-created bubble containing many fluid colours. To be allowed a glimpse inside is a rare and intriguing new experience worth seeking.” ★★★★★ Theatre Monkey
