'Wild Flowers' and '16 Minutes'
'Wild Flowers' is a short musical about 5 women, singers/performers who
never really made it and never will. They get together in a shabby
dressing room to prepare for a show and talk, bitch, gossip about their
(love) lives, expectations, disappointments etc In between they burst
out singing, motown, jazzy etc. solos and background singing in harmony.
'16 minutes' written by Matteo Pasquini, centres around Ulin, who returns home, having lived in “The South”, and who meets up with long-time friend, Mabur, to have lunch. Ulin realises that there have been many changes, both in his country and his friend and strange new rules introduced by the government "to enhance the happiness and the safety of the people" include how long the national dish should be cooked for! This dark drama will challenge your perceptions on the way modern ‘spin’ government works.
'Wild Floweres' and 'Checking Out'
'Wild Flowers' written by Marlis, is a short musical about a group of slightly jaded performers who never really made it and never will. Set in the dressing room of a seedy theatre as they prepare for another show, they talk, bitch and gossip about their (love) lives, expectations and disappointments. Interspersing this they burst into song. With classic Motown hits, this toe tapping, fun musical romp will make you laugh as you repress your desire to sing along with truly great songs.
'Checking out', written by Jo Chandler, is the story of Sandra’s visit to her successful daughter, Kerry-Ann. But tensions soon arise as it is revealed just how embarrassed Kerry-Ann is that her mother acts so crassly and is happy to work at a supermarket, whereas Kerry-Ann has pulled herself up the social ladder. But is all as it seems?
