Fingers and Toes
After two years of failing to conceive, Rachel is desperate for a baby. But can husband Michael rise to the occasion? Things come to a head when Rachel decides to spice things up in the bedroom. Finalist in the 2011 Ovation Theatre Awards, and performed at Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Annie has lost something very precious. Derek in Lost Property believes he can help her. But can life and death really be that simple? A surreal comedy, first performed at Lost Theatre’s 5 Minute Festival 2011, south London. “A couple of very original oddball characters, along with strong performances, made this play very enjoyable. Interesting idea and some great play with parallels between real life and material loss in our lives. Highly commended.” Festival judging panel.
