FIFTH PLANET: Charts the friendship between two observatory workers as it waxes and wanes over the course of a year.
HERE WE GO: A short play about death by Caryl Churchill. A funeral party for a man with an adventurous past and a ginger cat that needs a home. Where is he now? Is his heart lighter than a feather? How did he die? And what happens to his friends?
LOUISA MAY INCEST: The writing of Little Women is interrupted when the character Jo March and her famous creator cannot agree on the ending. The struggle for control of the book becomes deadly when Jo accuses Louisa of repressed lesbian desires and incest memories.
