SHOUTING THROUGH A WINDOW. A tale of love and loss, dementia, and pandemic. Set in a Care Home where Mac and Teresa can only hold conversations by, well, shouting through a window. TIME TEAM - THE MUSICAL. Archaeology, against the clock, live on TV, what better subject could there be for a comedy musical? Featuring 50 years of great comedy moments, from the 1960's to 20-teens, and endorsed by Sir Tony Robinson. ALFRED, ROSIE, AND JOHN. Another jukebox musical, with an environmental theme. Bristol Zoo is closing after 186 years, and the animals reminisce about its great times and friends loved and lost. There is a new future at the Wild Place, but will it help with The Climate Crisis, and Conservation? LIFE OF FLOYD, a jukebox musical with tracks from the legends that are Pink Floyd. It takes us through Floyd's life, from when he starts to Breathe, needing an Education, to ending on the Dark Side of the Moon.
Bolton's favourite son, his life as a steeplejack to his love of steam engines is told through sketches and song. Much is relayed by his 3 wives, Alison, Sue, and Sheila, who each sing, then join together at Fred's passing with FOR THE LOVE OF FRED. Other brand new songs include GO TO GREECE, THE DAY BOLTON STOOD STILL, THE STEEPLEJACK RAP, and the anthemic DID YOU LIKE THAT?.

WORKSHOP OF THE WORLD, a similar script jukebox musical for the City of Birmingham. Rock and Heavy Metal dominates, from Black Sabbath to Judas Priest, Slade to Dexys, Duran Duran to UB40. A history of the City that made just about everything, and has more canals than Venice. BANNOCKBURN! Another jukebox musical, celebrating all things Scottish, and singing popular Scots songs, whilst defeating the English in battle
The story of the birth of Jesus, except with some of the mistakes taken out, particularly the mistake that many think Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He Wasn't. Jesus was born in Brislington, hence not the nativity, but the Bristivity. Part seasonal play, part musical, and part pantomime. And its sequel is JESUS OF BRISLINGTON, set a few years later, and including Baptism in Brislington Brook, and the Sermon on Hanham Mount. Both are 2-act musicals.
THE LAST FIFTY FIVE. A bus journey through Bristol, the conversations on it, a play for youth theatre. This play was short listed for an award by the Somerset Federation of Drama in 2019, in its one-act new writing competition. A BUDGIE FOR MY BIRTHDAY, a 25 minute play for primary school age children, all dressed as budgies, singing popular childrens songs, and with an underlying theme of togetherness and acceptance. THE VICAR OF NIBLEY, a 30 minute radio play that was performed by BBC Radio Bristol presenters on Christmas Eve 2021. Clearly a skit on The Vicar of Dibley, with a Greater Bristol emphasis, it had afternoon show presenter Claire Cavanagh as the "Dawn French" role. Other performers included breakfast show host James Hanson, and sport's Geoff Twentyman.
Short sketches of 5 to 10 minutes, for variety shows. Each is based on a popular song lyric. Sketches so far include I WILL SURVIVE, PARANOID, ERNIE, FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK, and WAR WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
