Buskers

Synopsis:
a tragi-comedy for which Jupp received a 500 award from the Arts Council (judged by such luminaries as alec Guinness and Christopher Fry.) It is an unusual haunting play concerning the effect, which certain tragic incidents in the past have had upon the lives of a family of travelling actors and musicians.

Tosca's Kiss

Synopsis:
Nuremberg 1946. Rebecca West, celebrated writer and journalist, arrives to report on the world's first ever war crimes trial. She is witness to a young US prosecutor who faces the most difficult cross-examination of his life, because although Hjalmar Schacht may not have been a mass murderer, he was the economist who made the Third Reich work. and although Francis Biddle, his mentor, the American judge does not condone Schacht's actions, he sees that he is key to the post-war recovery of Germany. What the young lawyer sees is political expediency and moral compromise behind the official pursuit of truth and justice. as the public and personal collide nothing is simple when idealism clashes with political reality.
