StyleFunny full length British farce. Single set (hotel reception area). Contains mild swearing and intimations of nudity and adultery (obviously an adult theme).
SynopsisBanker Roger Crompton is hoping to celebrate his fiftieth birthday by consummating an adulterous affair with a colleague. Unfortunately, the hotel he's picked just happens to be the one his colleague has been threatening to shut down. In true dirty weekend tradition, they are booked in the name of Jones, but of course, they aren't the only Joneses staying in the hotel - there's Nathan Pond, an aging rock star, heading for a festival with his agent, but also hiding from a stalker. Mistaken identity abounds, not least when Roger assumes that the local policewoman is really a stripogram.

I Don’t Think I’ll Be Here Next Christmas by Dawn Cairns

StyleA one act comedy with a single setting.
SynopsisCantankerous pensioner Jean always spends Christmas with her son John and his wife Sheila. The mutual dislike between Sheila and Jean constantly bubbles under the surface and is reflected in the presents they give each other. Everything threatens to boil over after an incident involving sixpences in the Christmas pudding (and a toenail in the Bombay mix). Fortunately for Sheila, their daughter Laura comes to the rescue. The play features the same characters as You Won't Know I'm Here - though works perfectly well as a standalone piece.
