Clench by Sean Cook
To escape the domestic monotony of his shed and patio Tom decides to explore the forest on the other side of the railway. Unfortunately, he gets caught masturbating by door to door cleaning products salesman, Simon, who knows an awful lot about him and his girlfriend, Ruth.
Tom - Male 40-50 - An erstwhile musician and songwriter, now in his forties, Tom is wondering how he ended up in suburbia growing tomatoes. He is clever but weak willed and insecure and has been depressed for most of his adult life. And although he tries to present an amiable persona and has never lost his sense of humour he increasingly comes across as a pathetic figure.
Ruth - Female 35-45 - Ruth is an intelligent and strong woman. Unfortunately she loves Tom and that love has been tested to its limit by his indifference. She is desperate to save the relationship but having found out about Tom’s ‘secret love’ is now close to giving up. She is compassionate and loving but there is a hint of desperation and self-loathing. A once happy and gregarious woman she has gradually bean beaten down by disappointment and is now lost, confused and vulnerable.
Simon - Male 35-50 - Intense, intelligent and obsessive, Simon is actually harmless. But he is deeply disturbed. For the most part he can come across as genial and almost charming but there is always a feeling with him that something is not quite right. Spend enough time in his company and his strange and worrying idiosyncrasies will invariably rear their ugly heads. And what’s even more discomfiting is that if anyone of us spent as much time on his or her own as he does then, just maybe, we too could end up like him.
Guards by Anthony Teague
Security guard Peter depends on the sense of status he gets from
humiliating and isolating needy workmate John. When a newly appointed guard, Andrei, starts treating John as halfway human, Peter does everything he can to expel this threat, flinging accusations of spying and illegality.
Peter – 35 - 50 - London-born, maybe South or East.
John – 35 - 50 - regional accent - this could be Midlands, North of England, wherever. Main idea is to suggest he hasn't grown up in a big
city, is naive, slightly childlike.
A small seaside town reminiscent of Dylan Thomas's 'under Milk wood' where a government sends all of its addicts.
Dead Old Man - 26-80 - A dead man who watches over the town. Must be skinny and worn as if ruined by a drug addiction.
John - 28-50 - Officious jobs worth, addicted to his position of authority. A public schoolboy turned politician. Pompous but well natured he was sent to Shingletown to recover from a nervous breakdown brought on by stress.
Raven - 25-35 - The last smoker in the land and a minor celebrity because of it. She now gives talks on over coming addiction.
Sarah - 16-26 - Daughter of Ronnie and abused by him. Addicted to drink due to an addicted father and recently deceased mother. She is a lost soul.
Ronnie - 35-50 - Father of Sarah. Very protective of his daughter. An alcoholic mostly due to the loss of his wife.
Maggie - 24-35 - Kleptomaniac admitted to Shingletown, desperately trying to deal with the fact that her husband has gone away to war.
Suffering In Sirens by Adam Brummitt
Set against accounts of the experiences endured by Yosef, an Israeli member of The IDF beginning his compulsory military tenure at eighteen, and Arsalan, a Palestinian detainee, during the Israeli Hezbollah War of 2006, the play examines the events specific to these two characters in the month long exchange of bombardment and the ramifications felt several years subsequent, impacting both younger and older generations of their families and spanning continents in its consequences.
All characters apart from Rodger originate from the Persian Gulf and are accordingly and essentially Arab.
Yosef - Early 20s - A former resident of Gaza, Son to Mashe, and serving member in the Israeli Defence Force nearing the completion of his three year contract of service.
Arsalan - Late 20s - Cousin to Rabina and Asghar, nephew to Arsalan, and former Israeli detainee, arrested on groundless charges of conspiring with Hamas resistance cells in Egypt.
Rabina - Early to Mid 20s - Daughter to Kalfan, Older sister to Asghar and cousin to Arsalan formerly a resident of Gaza and now studying in the UK. She has a fierce, hot tempered quality and is quick to trade hostility for hostility.
Asghar - Early 20s - Son to Kalfan, younger brother to Asghar and cousin to Arsalan; also a former resident of Gaza and a student in the UK, by contrast to his sister Asghar is far more meek and withdrawn, very used to having to play the peacekeeper to Rabina’s impulses towards confrontations.
Moshe – 45 - 50 - A middle aged Jewish resident of Gaza, father to Yosef and long time friend to Kalfan to whom he feels grateful and indebted for the saving of his family during a bombing raid on Gaza.
Kalfan – 45 - 50 - A middle aged Muslim living in Gaza, father to Rabina and Asghar, most his leisure time is spent with Moshe playing chess. A widower, Kalfan aided in the rescue of Moshe’s family when their neighbourhood was subject to bombing raids during an artillery exchange between Palestinian and Israeli forces.
Rodger – 25 - 40 - A conservative working class British native. Boisterous and opinionated, he is likely either affiliated or sympathetic towards the BNP or other such arguably xenophobic political parties and ideologies.
The Cannibals by Joseph Charlton
Sharpening knives, sycophantic waiters, difficult customers and burning lust: The Cannibals is the story of a struggle for sexual power in the work place. It takes place in a brasserie’s bustling kitchen: a respectable restaurant’s crude and confidential back stage. Chefs Nick and Mikey cook, chat, argue with one another, watch over their drunk dishwasher and abuse the waiting staff, all during one evening’s chaotic service. Their routine is disrupted, however, by the arrival of an attractive waitress, Giulia, who proves the collective object of the restaurant staff’s desires.
Nick - Over 25 – A Head Chef. Nick is tall, commanding, cool. He’s good looking, but not conventionally so. Faintly threatening too.
Mikey - 20-25 – A Sous Chef. Mikey is less tall than Nick. Possibly rounder and stouter. More like a rugby player – though not obviously sporty. He’s buoyant and lively; the life and soul of the party; cheeky and mischievous.
John – 30-50 - A dishwasher. A withered older man. Preferably has a beard. He’s been through the wars, but it’s not easy to tell exactly how. He’s got a mysterious quality, like a religious obsessive. But overall he’s boozy, delinquent and mad.
Greg - late 20s and mid 40s - French (Or at least has a French accent)
A restaurateur. A businessman-minded Frenchman, but he’s entirely at home in England. He uses his French-ness cynically: as currency for his job – it authenticates his restaurant.
Jacob – 18-23 - A waiter. Jacob has to be younger and more naïve than the chefs. He’s a posho with various affectations: Francophile, quoter of Shakespeare etc. He’s also slightly pathetic and we feel a bit sorry for him. For all his education and bravado he’s apt to get caught out by chefs.
Giulia - 18-23 - Italian (Or at least has an Italian accent)
A waitress. Giulia is a dream girl: a bombshell, who’s sexy but also sweet and willing to be entertained. She’s headstrong but also has a vulnerability meaning she’s not immune to being exploited.
