Central Park West

A one act comedy set in New York, exploring the mix of marriage, lies and serial infidelity, with Woody Allen’s entertaining dialogue thrown in! We meet - Phyllis, a successful, sardonic analyst, newly discovered her husband’s infidelity. Carol, long-time friend of Phyllis, caught in the cross-hairs of the evening revelations. Howard is Carol's neurotic husband who copes/or not with depression through cookery. Then Sam - Phyllis's lawyer husband complete with silver tongue, thick skin and an excessively large libido. And finally, Juliet a former patient of Phyllis's - and after lengthy therapy, is re-entering the world of relationships.



On Golden Pond

The loons are back again on Golden Pond and so are Norman Thayer, a retired professor, and Ethel who have had a summer cottage there since early in their marriage. This summer their daughter Chelsea -- whom they haven't seen for years -- feels she must be there for Norman's birthday. She and her fiance are on their way to Europe the next day but will be back in a couple of weeks to pick up the fiance's son. When she returns Chelsea is married and her stepson has the relationship with her father that she always wanted. Will father and daughter be able to communicate at last?




Daisies

Daisies is a straightforward, heart-on-sleeve double monologue for a young couple who become parents of a much-loved and long-awaited baby daughter, Daisy, only to face the horror of losing her in a sudden cot death; the play achieves a real tear-jerking power without ever sliding into soap-opera sentimentality.




Ali Baba & The Forty Thieves

The story centres on Ali Baba a poor barber living with his son, Rhum.

Although poor he is very happy, except when he is trying to avoid the romantic advances of his neighbour, Fatima Kebab.

The happiness does not last, however, as evil appears in the form of El Scorpio, a mysterious character, and his band of thieves who are after all the riches in the land.

But will everything go to their evil plan? This pantomime had lots to offer with laughs, goodies to cheer and as ever, baddies to boo.
