TIMELESS

If you can't trust your memory what can you trust?

Martin has a problem - he can’t make new memories since he went to the dentist ten years ago. He's a cabbie with the Knowledge, but he can't remember yesterday. It’s not only strange and upsetting for him, his wife has the unenviable task of explaining what’s wrong with him every single day - and the strain is beginning to show.

A production by Mixed Up Theatre of this single-hander was performed in London in 2018 at the Hen & Chickens in Islington (as part of the Camden Fringe) and also in Theatre N16.

In 2021, a further production (with the same team) performed it at The Space (London) and then took it on a mini-tour to Manchester (53Two Theatre) and Bristol (The Alma Theatre).

It was performed at the Liverpool Fringe in June 2018 and the Greater Manchester Fringe in August 2018. Starring Keith Hyland, Pea Lee and Sean McGlynn. Dir Emma Bird.

THE BOX

Tom and Kate have a large square box sitting in the middle of their living room. What’s in it and why does it matter to them?

THE BOX is an emotionally raw and visceral two hander about a couple struggling to move on with their lives after the death of their young son, and finally having to face up to the guilt they share over what happened to him.

It was performed in Bath in 2018 at the egg Theatre (part of Theatre Royal Bath) as part of a new writing festival. With Alice Grace and Tom Turner (pictured) and directed by Jenny Davies.

WELCOME TO PARADISE ROAD

In a society where nothing is private and no one knows who to trust, a woman’s partner has disappeared. She is visiting her neighbour, head of the local Neighbourhood Watch, to find out if she’s heard anything about his disappearance. Will her neighbour help her or is she the person she should be most afraid of?

WELCOME TO PARADISE ROAD is a 60min play about creeping state control and the dangers of our surveillance society. It was first performed in Apr 2016 at the Page to Stage Theatre Festival in Liverpool. It won several awards at the festival including Best Script (Brian Coyle), Best Director (Emma Bird) and Best Female Actor (Emily Heyworth). The same company performed the play in Jul 16 at the Greater Manchester Fringe.

ON BOWER HILL

Four youngsters spend much of their free time drinking cider on Bower Hill. They are riotous, irreverent and drunken but they can also be tender towards each other, loving and fiercely loyal. One of them has recently joined the army to move on from his chaotic teenage years and help set him and his girlfriend up with a new life. The army has made him grow up fast, but having escaped one chaotic life he now finds himself about to enter another – in an active war-zone thousands of miles away.  

The play is about four teenagers on the cusp of adulthood; it's about surviving in a small left-behind town; and it’s about masculinity – especially its destructive aspects – and how it affects the men who have to live up to it and the women who have to live with it

A half-hour extract from the play was performed at the egg Theatre in Bath in 2018 as part of a new writing festival. It was directed by Stephanie Kempson and featured: Sophie Cull, Samuel De La Torre, Rory Potts and Emily Rumble.
