Can I be honest with you? I’m really glad we’re doing this.
But… did you bring the biscuits?
After a year of being stuck, unexpectedly stranded in isolation, isn’t it time to meet someone new? Step inside and meet four eccentric characters who are desperate for company and comradeship – whether that’s sharing a cuppa, a daydream or a waxworm. Written by some of the most exciting up-and-coming talent, each semi-improvised short play will plunge the audience into a funny, surprising and perhaps peculiar experience, where you get to be part of reclaiming control of the story. Together, create playful interactions, celebrating the absurdity of human connection.
Step inside and become part of a new story, a new world, where YOU are part of deciding how it ends. Pop in for one, or stay for all four!

Gluten Free Chocolate Crispy Caramel Mini Bite by Tabby Lamb
A cancelled picnic, a cancelled protest and now a cancelled bus? A clarion call for a more tender society, Gluten Free Crispy Caramel Mini Bite by Tabby Lamb (Since U Been Gone, HighTide) is about the need to be seen, heard and valued for who we are.
Reptile by Macadie Amoroso
Alone within four walls, sometimes you need to have a conversation, have someone talk back to you, someone to tell you that your Ex just isn’t worth it. Reptile by Maddie Amoroso (Blue Beneath My Skin, Bunker Theatre) is a heart-warming piece about a cold-blooded companion in the good times and the bad.
The Recluse Who Lives On A Hill by Ryan Lane
Rumour has it she was once the most famous woman in Hollywood but now, faded beyond memory, she lives out her days inside, trying to recreate the Golden Years. At The Recluse Who Lives On A Hill from Ryan Lane (Ryan Lane Will Be There Now In A Minute, VAULT Festival), you might enter as a nobody, but you could leave as the next shining star.
Share-My-Home Companion by Gabriella Leon
Meet a unique friend, use words to create something never heard before and make your time count with Share-My-Home Companion from Gabriella Leon (BBC’s Casualty). A ludicrous and powerful piece about the need to have something to do, something to look forward to, something to talk about as time trickles and yet races away, stuck inside.
