Play 1: 'Are you there though?'
Set amongst a game of musical chairs, sal and Jim navigate their way through dodgy party tracks and their separate lives, in the ten years after Uni. Sometimes, they come together, mostly they are apart. What happens when the music stops?

Play 2: Battle lines
A fast paced play; exploring sexism and class in the city, that will get you cringing and chuckling in equal measure. But who's right, Victoria or Lauren?

Play 3: The day Iain Duncan Smith came round for a brew
Jackie's got a temporary lodger, her daughter, Lauren! Manchester City Council doesn't know Lauren is living there, so whilst stuck at home all day, applying for jobs, Jackie won't allow her to open the door ! Lauren takes no notice.
