CREATIVE & PROVOCATIVE
IN THE PRESS
Play In A Day draws in the audience from the first lights up, from the first page. An inspiration from the start. All the plays contained in this little page turner were written and performed in 24 hours.
A delightfully eccentric study of good manners; think 19th century style Come Dine With Me. Mrs Wilma Cruikshank is evidently fond of experiemnts, as the menus have included the most exotic dishes from around the world.
Brealey's ability to expose the flaws in the human condition his home in this collection of one act plays, aptly tilted Performing The Goat. The 'goat' in the title refers to the Greek tragos, mean tragedy.
JAKE RANDELL, THE WASHINGTON PAPER
Seventeen of my One-Act plays and three of my Full-Length plays have been produced in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and London.
I have won a number of awards on the Fringe circuit and I have a number of self-published collections of plays; one-act and full-length. I was born in Melbourne, Australia and my heritage descend from Irish and English stock.
No White Mongoose For Wilma was my London Theatre debut, held at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden in the Black Box Festival; the first step towards my goal of a West End production. Following my London debut, In The Eyes Of My Heart opened at The Lost Theatre, Stockwell as part of the 5-Minute Festival. The Cockpit Theatre welcomed Fergus' Envy as part of their theatre in the pound festival with positive and supportive feedback from the MC and audience.
My mother says my theatre awakening came to light watching a performance of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs when I was aged 4. Now, I’m taller, a lot older and a playwright with writing and producing expertise beholden in the Fringe theatre arena.
