a double bill of new plays
Roses in december
Roses in December is a gentle, humanist look at the long haul of a single father bringing up a son. A fleeting series of vignettes, framed by the ever present sea, traces a path of dependency - that of the son on the father, then ultimately that of the father on the son.

It's a cold, still morning in Woodlands Cemetery, and the church bells are waiting to chime. The country is holding its breath. The birds' song is caught in their throats. He's waiting too, this man in high-viz, this clown. He's waiting for the stroke of Eight.
A monologue, in blank verse, in less than half an hour.
