‘Pru’s got issues. Her heating’s been shut off cause of a new super Waitrose past the wee little American Top Golf in Bearsden. Pru needs tae get a job. She also needs tae work on her timekeeping, and stop swearing…. And why is she wearing a Viking Helmet??? – Set in Glasgow, Scotland.

The bittersweet story of six women who gather under the dryers at Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets on four significant days across three years of their lives. When tragedy strikes, they face it with sass and strength. By turns hilarious and poignant, Steel Magnolias is a heart warming portrait of friendship and love.
Middle Aged Rent: A teenager is lost in Eighties London, long before Facebook & Grindr.
The Diva Drag: A mother and son battle it out with humour, fury and passion in this bitter sweet story of love and (possible) reconciliation.

Chloe sleeps spread out like a starfish every night. Her life is full of yoga, wine and definitely not missing Joanna. Joanna hasn’t changed her pants in ten days, because she can’t work out how to use the washing machine. Oh, and she’s starting to suspect Chloe’s controlling her mind. A grotesquely comic account of breaking up.
He’s in Cyprus following a bitter breakup, waiting for one perfect sunset. She’s Irn Pru, dashing through Glasgow, desperately desiring a job. A double bill of monologues about loss, love & life. No matter where we come from. From the Off-West End Award nominated writer of The Me Plays and IN/OUT (A Feeling).
