BEAUTY (65 mins)
Lesley Ross’ first play produced at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 1992, nearly 25 years ago.
Beauty tells the story of a young woman suffering from the eating disorder Bulimia Nervosa. The disease has a most damaging effect on the sufferer and family and it manifests itself in the relationship between the protagonist, Fay, and The Model: the voice within her head.
‘A strong cast make few concessions in this uncompromising play.’ The Independent – The Best of the Edinburgh Festival.
‘Excellent.’ The Scotsman
EGGPLANT (55 mins)
Lisa invites you to her cousin Tom’s 30th birthday party, and all that comes with it; jelly, pass the parcel and some home truths about the Little Mermaid.

This is about to become one party that you won’t want to miss.
First Produced at The Edinburgh Fringe 1998
Nominated For Edinburgh Fringe First

LOVING PETER PALMER (25 mins)
Once a year three women meet Peter Palmer in a hotel room.
But what is their connection to him?
And why do they need the ice cream?
First workshopped at The Soho Theatre, this one act piece was eventually performed at the New End Hampstead.
“The play’s theme may sound maudlin but is astonishingly funny. The tone skips convincingly between moments of distress, anger and absurdity, thanks to perceptive direction from Steve Marmion and the assured performances of Josephine Butler, Samantha Power and Tracey Ann Wood.” Jeremy Kingston of The Times
