OCTOBER 2015

An Almost Perfect Thing

Greg is a journalist searching for a high-profile story to help revive his career. Chloe is the missing girl he wrote about years earlier who returned home to a world she no longer recognized. Instead of leading police to her captor, Chloe turns to Greg to share her story. Unfortunately for him, Chloe won’t provide names or locations, and instead dictates exactly how the story should be told. But Chloe has become an international celebrity and the public all want to know, who is her kidnapper? Why is she protecting him? When Greg begins to question whether truth and fiction have collided, he takes matters into his own hands, in spite of the drastic consequences.

JULY 2016 – BARD ON THE BAY

twelfth_night

In the aftermath of a shipwreck, Viola, believing she is now alone in the world, disguises herself as a young man named Cesario. As such, she enters the service of Duke Orsino. The Duke, frustrated in his wooing of Olivia, despatches ‘Cesario’ as an intermediary. Olivia promptly falls in love with ‘Cesario’ (who has, in the meantime, fallen in love with the Duke).

 Take it away, Shakespeare.
