THESE PRODUCTIONS WITHIN COMPELLED ARE NOW CAST:

DOMINO A woman dressed in her ‘working outfit’ talks frankly about her profession as a dominatrix.

UNHITCHED Two young women meet on the verge of a motorway - clearly both intent upon hitching a lift from passing traffic. A heated debate including shocking revelations ensues over who should have priority and why.

MERCY
The faded diva stage veteran Maisie Morgan rages forth with a slightly inebriated but vitriolic outburst as, with blustering umbrage, she rails against the apathy of disrespectful theatre audiences.
 
CROSSING THE LINE 
A mother describes in harrowing detail the distressing circumstances which have led her into a dark and dreadful situation from which there is no turning back.
 
KILSHEENLAN BAY  A moving and poignant spoken word/monologue of an expatriate Irish man in 1939.

A CULTURAL ENIGMA  Zazzi is a young Chinese woman now living in Glasgow Scotland and experiencing some confusion with the inherent malapropisms within the local dialect and vocabulary.

GOING STRAIGHT (3m/1f) Mark and Lawrence are a married gay couple. They have a son, Stephen, who suddenly announces his intention to marry a young woman, Tara. A furore ensues from both dads, the son and his fiancee in this contemporary satire.

SNOW JOB (2f) Jean Hendry walks in to a coffee bar and looks around. She sees a stranger, Gillian Stone, roughly her own age, seated at a table nursing a cappucino. 
She takes the seat next to her, they acknowledge one another, before the small talk begins … ending with Jean stealing Gillian’s identity.

Roles available:
2 FEMALES mid-late 20s+
