Sara writes: "In by the Half is a humorous yet immensely touching play written by Jimmie Chinn. Madam, once a distinguished actress, lives in seclusion in a cottage in West London, looked after by her housekeeper and ex-dresser, Doris. Their peaceful routine is suddenly disturbed by a surprise visitor . . .”

Ruth says: “My play is the premier of a new play by Holly Winney, an ex student of mine, called Don’t Go to Bed Angry. The play revolves around an everyday couple, living in an everyday flat, visited by an everyday vicar. So what is so special about today?”
