When time is running out, what choice would you make?

Three strangers in a storm, two compatible souls, one catalyst…
Two are designers/engineers, both working separately on the same project and having the same problem. They are two perfect negatives who, together, combine to form the perfect positive. All that is needed is someone to point it out to them. A light-hearted, feel-good comedy.
Cherries for Eddie
By TV McKarren
Directed by John Cocks-Evans
Distrust, lies and deceit have consequences…for everyone.
A hospital visit between Kate and her brother-in-law, Eddie, transforms from cordiality to a haunting exploration of buried secrets. Unravelling a web of deceit, this emotional rollercoaster delves into the shadows of their shared history, forcing them to confront the consequences of concealed truths.
Mountain Gorillas
By Ashleigh Jones
Directed by Simone Walsh
Don’t we have enough humans on our planet?
Childfree Stephanie is going to a party and she knows the topic of having children will come up. Her fears are realised when it seems to be the only thing she is asked about, by everybody. They seem obsessed with her producing offspring, like she is in some breeding programme for endangered species.
Well Met By Moonlight
by Paul Charlesworth
Directed by Liam Mulvey
If The Bard gave couples therapy on midsummer’s night…
A madcap and zany comic romp set in a present day wood, written in Shakespearean verse.
