(Work in Progress)
King & Queen Productions, Etcetera Theatre
Asking the question ‘who saves you?,’ Tatters weaves tales of modern slavery set in the UK with Cinderella stories from around the world. From stories of forced prostitution to ones of endless poverty, we follow the lives of three women and their struggle to free themselves from their oppressors.
Hostage/ Bleach/ Burn
Camden Fringe, Etcetera Theatre
In a dark room in a distant, undisclosed country, a man held hostage by militants searches for absolution in each link in the chain of events that lead to his captivity. In another room, in a comfortable, westernised country, a young woman who fancies herself a free spirit discovers the real nature of the walls that surround her. Deep in the heart of Montreal, a man weighs the weight of his existence after learning his whole life was based on a lie.
These 3 one person shows spin tales of three people in different times and places trapped in their lives, trying to find out how they got there and where they can go.

As part of NewWriting NewWorlds
NewWriting NewWorlds is a festival dedicated to new playwriting and literary development. It provides an opportunity for talented, emerging playwrights and theatre artists to develop their skills and see their work realised on the stage.
Now & Fornever
8-0-8 Productions asked playwrights spanning Canada and beyond to write scenes about irrevocable human loss. Now & Fornever is a true mixture of life and loss, expressed and felt by anyone and everyone. And in these moments, captured so elegantly by the playwrights and expressed so vividly by the performers, we see the truly optimistic and hopeful nature of humanity, gently looking skyward just past the black horizon.
Reel to Real
Theatre 503 (Writer of Pop-Dance-Tastic)
Helmed by 8 dynamic directors, Reel to Real is part pop culture deconstruction, part relay race through cinematic history and genre. From the challenges of staging a ten minute Rom-Com, to what might have happened if Fred and Ginger had never made it to Hollywood, to the seedy world of low-budget Nunsploitation films – We guarantee this is cine-theatre as you’ve never seen it.
New Place – St. Albans
‘I’m not political- I’ve never voted. Not once. 45 years old and I never cared who ran things. It didn’t matter.’ – HOSTAGE
‘My dad said burn it. Burn it all. ‘I wouldn’t step in that house even if it was disinfected with beach. So much bleach it turned white.’’ – BLEACH
