Extract from BAD NEWS by Shaun Kitchener


Christine has become something of a national hero after a young woman on the verge of suicide publicly credited her with saving her life.

BUBBLES by Joe Jones


Joe Jones returns to Briefs with his latest poignant, thoughtful and occasionally funny monologue; directed by brother Tom.

DRYSYNC by Sarah Power


You may well have seen, read and heard many witty spins on last year’s EU referendum, but none of them are quite so funny and uncomfortably on-the-money as this by Sarah Power; starring (L-R) Matthew Durkan, Sam Jenkins-Shaw, Howard Perret and Bart Suavek. Louisa Beadel directs, with Anna Spearpoint as associate director.



Rob Ellis directs this short, sharp comedy about two hired assassins debating whether or not to follow through with the task in hand. Katherine Edrupt and Sophie Mackenzie star.

KISSING GHOSTS by Frances Bushe


Rosa French and Timothy George lead this beautifully written piece about two strangers talking under very, very unique circumstances. Ant Cule directs.

LIFE ON TOAST by Alasdair Melrose and Charlie Burt


Charlie Burt and Alasdair Melrose write and perform in this witty two-hander about the end of the world. And toast. Michal Ish Horowicz directs.

PROPOSAL by Oliver Malam


A woman finds herself with a double-whammy of oddly executed propositions when a face from her past shows up. Georgia Robson, Eliot Ruocco-Trenouth and Sam Saunders star, with direction from James Callas Ball.

WALK ON by Jack Stacey


Skyla Bryant, Madeleine Coles and Hetty Elliott star in this very well-written short about the journey of a relationship. Sam Ward directs.
