'Love, Revenge & Buttered Scones' Comedy of errors. Three troubled people dash off to the Scottish Highlands to find their destinies mysteriously entwined around a reading group in the Inverness public library. Twists & surprises, very funny with also some dark, serious threads, it keeps you guessing throughout.

'Truth Games' We're in 1970s London, the blazing summers of 75 & 76, and a group of friends are getting way out of their depth in infidelity. Thought-provoking, amusing & sexy.
