The Last Tango In Little Grimley

Written by David Tristram

Directed by Steve Berry

Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to four - the audiences aren't much bigger - and if they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out. "There's only one thing that sells tickets these days" argues Gordon the Chairman. "Sex!". Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never forget!

Along The Forgotten Road

by Neil Thorne
Directed by Jeni Brownsill & Neil Thorne

There is a place known only as the Town, that is out of place and time, that only the lost can find. A place for those who have given up. None who enter ever leave. One day, a new arrival finds himself in the Town and is approached by the Custodian who offers him the one thing that every resident has been given - a wish. Everything he ever wanted could be his but, seeing what it has given the residents, he is wary of a trap but also wonders how long he can resist it.
