Numbers by Kieron Barry:
A brutal and hilarious comedy, billed as Mean Girls meets Lord of the Flies and declared one of the greatest plays of all time for women in Lucy Kerbel’s volume “100 Great Plays For Women”. A vicious battle of wills breaks out between four sixth formers at an all-girls boarding school the hour before a new Head Girl is announced. As the girls vie for the coveted position, old friendships and loyalties give way to ambition and betrayal. ‘Clever, fast-paced, witty and caustic ... well-crafted and wonderfully funny’ (Time Out)
Our Little Secret by Rollin Jewett:
A comic drama and award winner in the 2016 Helen Jean Playwriting Contest. A lonely young lady is enjoying a peaceful night in her condo in Miami when she is surprised by an armed intruder breaking into her home on the run from the police. As pressure builds she finds out that the outlaw is not what he seems and as their relationship builds she must make a decision whether to help him ... or turn him in. ‘This play will delightfully surprise any audience by pleasantly tricking them into accepting an incredible, but ultimately entertaining premise’
