A witty and moving performance piece for the teenage actor
Fairytaleheart features two fifteen-year-olds, Kirsty and Gideon, who meet for the first time and come to terms with their broken families by sharing their hopes, fears and past experiences - as well as stories - in a derelict community centre
Sparkleshark tells of fourteen-year-old Jake - a victim of bullying and other teenager's mockery - who has to take refuge on the roof of a tower block in order to write his stories
Moonfleece sees Curtis, a young right-wing activist, arrange a meeting in a flat of a derelict tower block where he lived as a child
But his older brother's ghost keeps haunting him
An intense and thrilling exploration of memory and identity.
Brokenville features an unknown disaster, which has left seven characters with little knowledge of who they are or of what has happened
