BARBECUE is a comedy, and drama festival award winner, set a week later when Lydia and her husband host a house warming to meet their rather odd neighbours with hilarious results.
PSYCHIC BABBLE and ONE MISTAKE are two self contained one-act plays that are linked by the same set and were performed under the collective title BAR TALK. They both take place in the bar of a small country hotel however PSYCHIC BABBLE is a comedy set in the afternoon when the bar is closed and therefore if performed on it`s own does not need a bar.

ONE MISTAKE is a thriller and drama festival award winning play, set late at night where barman Alan and nightclub singer Clare go through a roller coaster of emotions as dark secrets are revealed.
