The three newest plays here are Sweet & Sour Snickers, about a dysfunctional family’s Christmas, Donkey, a comment on the contributions to society made by ordinary folk, and Two Cream One Sugar, which pokes perverse fun at academia in general, and theatre in particular. The Brides of Sweet William is good for a laugh. Or for something short and sweet – try Scrabble.
And if anyone ever mounts any of these productions, please let me know it’s happening.
