Two short plays by E.V. Crowe and Abi Zakarian, directed by Jo McInnes.
I Can Hear You by E.V. Crowe
Tommy is dead. It's always tragic when they die young.
People have posted loads of nice stuff on his Facebook page. His sister Ruth has returned for the funeral and wants to get it just right. Proper cutlery and a good spread. The send-off he deserved, and certainly better than they managed when mum died.
The following Sunday Ruth's plans to leave again are interrupted as the doorbell rings and in walks a still very much dead, Tommy.
E.V. Crowe's naturalistic supernatural play examines what the possibilities are for the women in Tommy's family, and questions if it's as easy for everyone to reveal what it is they want.
Running time: 50 minutes (followed by a 20 minute interval before This Is Not An Exit)
This Is Not An Exit by Abi Zakarian
One day Nora decides she can't have it all; where would she put it?
Desperate to fight but not knowing how or against what, she attempts to navigate the difficult terrain of womanhood; but certain others have different ideas...
This new play is a funny and ferocious drama about the absurdity at the heart of modern womanhood, and what really stands in the way of fulfilment.
Running time: 40 minutes
