THE FOUR PLAYS/EXCERPTS
---------------------------------------------------
WOTSITS by Joanne Griffiths
Two women meet in a park – but what exactly is the truth behind their meeting?
Lesley, F, 35: self-assured, confident, articulate. But acting very strangely
Nina, F, 25: self-absorbed, quite fickle. Not at all sure what is happening

BATH TIME by Jamie Christian
Johnny invites his old and estranged friend Chris to a house party, but what exactly does he want?
Johnny, M, 25: middle class; successful opera singer
Chris, M, 25: working class; hard life; works nights

RISE by Jack Silver
A cleaner is encouraged by her friend to apply for promotion, but her supervisor is having none of it.
Coleen, F, 40s; cleaner in an old people’s home. Downtrodden, but should not be underestimated
Mandy, F, 20s; cleaner in an old people’s home. Coleen’s friend. Not afraid to speak her mind
Jocelyn, F, 50s; Coleen’s supervisor. Pulls rank at the slightest sign of trouble

SEARCH by Louise Amos
Flatmates Davey and Stanni have a plan to change their lives, but they hadn't factored in Cherish
Stanni, M, 20s: Polish; been in London a few months; open, sense of fun; homesick
Davey, M, 40s: Scottish, 40s; displaced, approaching 50; works at a meat packers; angry
Cherish, F, 18-25: black, from SE London, used to fighting her corner; she and Stanni are an item
