My body of work is growing and I have realised there is a gap in the market for one act plays, of which I have quite a few. I hope to allow amateur, and professional, theatres to perform my plays and pantomimes at a reasonable rate. I have noticed a dearth of one act plays whilst trying to find one for my own theatre so decided to write some along with putting new energy in the British Christmas tradition of pantomimes.

When a Russian woman invites people to her country home for the weekend to say a final farewell, she finds her final days are shorter than she thought as are the days of her faithful assistant. A double murder occurs in a place that has no means of communication to the outside world.

A double murder that occurs in the context of the Novichok attacks in Shropshire. Amongst the guests, the detective has to work out who the culprit is. The audience is asked to guess as well so this provides an interactive theatrical evening, which can be played over multiple shows as there can be many endings, of which all endings are included.

The family of Andrew Hunter are standing at his grave, remembering him and wondering about his car accident and how it could happen as he was such a good driver. Social restrictions can end up being harmful and how families can contribute to this. As they reflect on the man they knew, a friend of his tells them of the man that he knew.

They are different people.

Bill has been made redundant and has reached his 60th birthday. He is in his shed and is reflecting on his life, what has happened and how he feels useless. Mental apparitions from his past manifest to help him think clearly about his past and his future. Four people have found themselves redundant and bemoaning their lives.

As a distraction, one of their brothers suggests getting back to when life was a lot simpler. As adults, they get dressed up as children and go back to where they played when they were younger. During this time, they realise that the past should stay in the past and that the present and the future should be their focus.
