Continuing on from last year we bring back Perspectives - bringing writers and directors
together to create three thirty minute pieces of theatre on the theme of History.
This years plays are:

centuries, compare their lives and their aspirations. Sarah is a modern, well-educated

husband. She is visited by a Suffragette ghost, Edith, who takes her back to the
Votes for Women struggles of 1911, to help her re-evaluate what really matters.

happened the night the Boyle’s lost their pub licence and why Annie and Tommy split
Smiles Fade In The Morning (Writer Josh Hinds, Director Amy Liptrott)
Monica and Joseph are deeply in love with one another and recently moved in together.
However, after a particularly wild house warming party Monica’s necklace has gone
missing. As the two begin to search for the necklace they begin to expose more and
more things about each that they dislike.
