Written & performed by Christopher Georgiou and Shauna McLean

It’s Christmas in London, and Sam and Viv are spending it cuddled on the sofa, eating chocolates and watching crap on the telly. Except there’s an envelope filled with cash stuffed under the cushions, a baseball bat by the door and a secret that’s going to have to come out before Boxing Day …




Written by Alexander Knott
Performed by James Demaine, Ryan Hutton, Joshua Nutbrown and Alexander Knott

London, 1962. A pile of money, everything to lose. Sharkey’s down again. Whitmore’s up on the pills. And they’ve gone and lost a briefcase full of cash on the horses. Chances are, their boss won’t be pleased. It’s dog eat dog, and the dinner bell’s been rung …

A black comedy about thugs, drugs and dodgy dealings.
