THE SISTERS: Two lower-working class sisters live together in a fractious relationship and both are on their uppers financially. In this short comedy-drama they bicker over money and a visit to the local.
Brenda: Female, age 25-45 Carol: Female, age 18-25
SORTED: London brothers Lawrence and Johnny Wilde have a dispute over older brother Lawrence’s wife Lara, who has apparently engaged in an extra-marital tryst with the milkman. Lawrence is incandescent with rage and wants tough-guy sibling Johnny to top the pair of them.
• Both parts in this play have now been cast
WOMEN ALOUD: A selection of compelling and powerful new female monologues. Several actresses with outstanding stage presence and vocal projection are respectfully asked to apply.
Titles: C’est La Vie / Maverick / Date / Emotional Creature / Choice / By Phone / Read It And Weep / Feminista (this last one is already cast)
CRUSH: Robert is a sensitive and decent school-teacher and Sandra, a diligent and intelligent teenage student in his class. Both are participants in a seemingly impossible romance.

MERE MORTAL: Jack Turner, an eloquent atheist of indeterminate age, is terminally ill with cancer. He is seated in a wheelchair throughout the play, and directly addresses the audience. Scene by scene he switches into conversations with a Doctor, a Nurse and a Psychiatrist.

FERAL: Mercer is a fiercely intelligent, socially aware young woman, highly skilled in combat and physically fit, supremely alert mentally and in possession of little or no tolerance for anything which conflicts with her views. She loathes politicians, weaklings, bullies and gangs – she is a fully-focussed individual. She displays her fitness and articulates her monologue through extreme physicality and visual flair. She is wearing combat trousers, boots and singlet vest – her skin glistening with sweat (using oil as body make-up).
Mercer: Female, age 18-30 physically fit - as this is a very demanding performance
