A new 15 minute stage play called 'stuck'

I've completed a 15 minute stage play for the REDFest drama festival at the Old Red Lion theatre in Islington called 'Stuck'.

Feedback from Cornerhouse theatre

I've got some feedback from the Cornerhouse theatre in Surbiton about the play I sent them entitled 'Can't see, won't see'. You can read it here: Can't see, won't see.

A one act play: 'Can't see, won't see'

I've just sent off a one act play to the Cornerhouse theatre in Surbiton, http://www.thecornerhouse.org/. It's part of a one act theatre festival next spring. I only found out at the last minute that they're looking for plays for a family audience so I've toned down the language. Apart from that, I think a secondary school kid would be happy with it (I think!). The play is a tense drama with suspense, betrayal, surprises and a twist (or two!). Let me know if you like it.
