The plays are:
Choosy by Jack Stanley - Lex and Sam know it’s totally the right time to start a family. And they don’t want their child to have any of the issues they have. So they’ve signed up to a genetic service with a unique process that will make that wish a reality. But the experience proves tough. Testing their relationship and forcing them to face the news that made them consider this opportunity in the first place. Perfect genes come at a price.
Gretel by Tanya Bridgeman - Gretel is a modern retelling of Hansel & Gretel and explores themes of poverty, class, family and county lines. It delves into the lives of Britain’s invisible children and asks the question, “If put into their position what would you do?”
A Matter Of Course by Oliver Doone - An American businessman sets his sights on a tiny village on the North Coast of Northern Ireland as the setting for his new golf course. When a wee old woman won't part with her land, residents take matters into their own hands. A dark comedy-drama about a tiny community battling the forces of global consumerism.
