Rich and Sam meet up at the airport. they haven't seen each other in years and they have practically nothing in common. But their father's lying in a coma and the least they can do is find out why. the beautifully crafted two-hander tells the story of two brothers trying to get to the hospital in one piece - a hilarious tale of suburban misadventure.

Third Floor

Third Floor
the last thing I want is all these total strangers, who live literally inches away from me, knowing every last detail of my life.' When a young woman buys her first flat it seems that all her dreams are coming true. then she meets him. Overbearing, brash, and prone to spectacular gaffs, her across-the-hall neighbour is definitely strange  yet strangely attractive. But when an innocent prank goes horribly wrong the newly-formed friendship is pushed to breaking point. Only then do the neighbours realise they don't know as much about each other as they thought they did. a vertical thriller for a time when a stranger is only one wall away.
