Synopsis of each play ;
Womberang by Sue Townsend :Sue Townsend delights in smashing the grim silence of the hospital waiting room in a charming and comic short play, as Rita whirls into a drab gynaecology clinic and smokes, rearranges the furniture and frightens away the clerk.Rita’s sparky no-nonsense attitude quickly livens up the sheepish patients:
Cream Cracker Under the Settee by Alan Bennett - one of Bennetts classic Talking Head monologues performed by our very own Bridgette Whittaker.
Two Women and a Chair by Michael Olsen :Two actors, Jessie and Martine, arrive at an audition to discover only a bare room with a mysterious black chair. The only instructions on what they should do are contained on the flyer advertising the play, and it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary audition—or is it an audition at all? Will they obey the cryptic instructions? What of Damian, the director? Is this all a plot to get back at Martine, or is there something more? The answers, as always, lie in the choices Jessie and Martine are about to make.
