“It`s A Girl Thing”by Brian LangtrySet initially in 1964 four young women meet in a Liverpool pub to celebrate a birthday. They intend to round off the evening by going to the legendary Cavern Club which is about to close its doors.The foursome, from varied social backgrounds and cultures, are bonded in lifelong friendship and share the excitement and anticipation of being about to embark upon their adulthood. In Act 1 we learn about their dreams, foibles, characters and aspirations. We also meet the strange and sinister `Suleman` a young man known to them but not befriended by them.Act 2 sees the foursome back in the pub once more some 10 years down the road. Life has changed for all and deep seated, uncomfortable and in some cases traumatic truths and events emerge. Each life has been touched by the unanticipated and emotional scars are laid bare and, sometimes willingly and sometimes forcefully, shared. They all have cause to wonder and consider. The play is about friendship, falling out, making up, life growth and hurting. Funny, Dramatic, Poignant, Captivating.

Tallulah is a two-act play focusing upon the character and life of the infamous Southern Belle who charmed London and Broadway theatre goers from the 1920`s through to her virtual retirement in the 1950`s.Outrageously craving of attention and defiant of all accepted expectations the openly bisexual Tallulah found herself drawn to the intellectual bohemians of her era becoming a devotee of both `The Algonquin Set` in New York and the `Bright Young Things` in London. She was reveired by her coterie in London; ` Gallery Girls ` who took great delight in defying every known theatre convention casting aside inhibitions and stamping, cooing and wailing at their heroine`s every movement. A uniquely stylised actress Tallulah would these days inevitably have become tagged with the mantle of `celebrity`.The play provides a frank and sexually revealing insight into the character, relationships, psyche and idiosyncrasies of this complex woman and the world and period which she inhabited. Visually engaging costuming, sets and styling from 1928 to 1954. The production runs for 1hour and 45 minutes.Minimum cast of 2 men and 2 women- 9 characters doubling or expanded cast for individual roles.Use of filmic sequences and a simulated staging of ` The Big Show` Tallulah`s hit radio show of the 1950`s which involves musical content.
