Lucy’s Tea Party by Molly Beth Morossa

“Filled with the freshness of Roald Dahl’s Rotten Rhymes and the nauseating monstrosity of Sweeney Todd” – Three Weeks (on Morossa’s poetry)

 

Chug Life by Dave Bibby

The story of one man and his journey to a cold pint. Stood in his way are an army of chuggers and monsters desperately trying to get their mitts on his cold hard cash.

 

The Dewey Ones by Ben Whitehead

Set in a Historic town on the island of Crete, this is an account of Ben’s experience spending an unsettling night in a converted windmill.

 

The Flat Upstairs by Paul Joseph

A series of increasingly desperate letters from Arthur Benedict to his Housing Manager, Dolly King, complaining about strange and disturbing activity happening in the flat above his. Only when we hear Dolly’s response back is the full nature of Mr Benedict’s living nightmare revealed.

 

Skag n’ Bone Man by Stack 10 Theatre Company

‘If you don’t go to bed the Skag n’ Bone Man’ll getcha. He’ll come for you if you’re naughty. You’ll hear him coming, boot heels crunching on the tower block stairs, bones rattling from his trench coat.

 

At The Edge by Ed Bailey

A young man stops to fish at the edge of a lake. “You won’t catch here. Not anymore,” says an old man coming out of the mist. A chilling tale of a mother’s love for her children, duty and sacrifice, desperation and murder.

 

The Haunt by Stack 10 Theatre Company

Inspired by epistolary fiction from Dracula to the House of Fallen Leaves, and tells the story of the horrors that lie under the surface of any small town in the UK. As he stares into the abyss, the abyss stares back and then pounces.
