Life Watered Down by Mickey McCullagh

What starts out as a normal Friday night in Belfast for close friends Ger, Darren and Trace turns out to be nothing of the sort. They are on the brink of something big, something terrifying that threatens to engulf them and their friendship. They are on the brink of life and suddenly find they have very little control.

The Hold by Johnson Orr

Sadie has had enough. She has even cancelled lunch to seek help. A chance meeting with Maggie challenges her to the limit and she realises that it’s all up to her. But she has so much to lose. A play about daring to change and how difficult that can be.

Embalming Edgar by Kristiina Kriisa

Agatha’s couture shop is the last one standing in a world where making hats is no longer an artform. Edgar, a lonely man with a sad secret gets enthralled by Agatha and her wonderful world of hats, feathers and fabrics. Then one day a threatening letter from the council arrives and a hero is called for.
