Sunday 25 February at 6pm.
Never,a short film by Jo Burke with David Shackleton from Eze Productions. We spend a few moments with Alan, an elderly gentlemen who played it safe his entire life. Loneliness is a massive issue for people especially in later life in the UK.
Goodbye to Berlin by Katherine Rodden, directed by Evelyn Campbell with Katherine Rodden, Carmina Bernhardt, Mark Fountain and Anthony Cozens. Zoe and Xavier are in love, the sort of non-messy love that buys you Goodbye to Berlin even though its £12.99. And then there’s Josie…
Tiny Tears by Geraldine Brennan with Joanna Pope. No one notices Debby, growing up in 1970s Liverpool as the middle child in a motherless family. She’s too old to play with dolls, and too young to call the shots. But she holds the worst family secret of all.
Pals by Sue Hassall, directed by Su Gilroy with J.K. Glynn and Jack Bloss. In Accrington, Linton stands at the foot of the bronze statue of a young Captain of the East Lancashire ‘Pals’ Regiment. He didn’t think Eddie meant literally steal it…
Lobster by and with Gemma Harvey directed by LouLou Mason. “Has texting turned us into the flakiest generation? How is it just as easy to order a date online as it is to purchase a chicken burger?” Meet Polly. Polly is looking for love… A high energy, comedic exposé of what it’s like to be a single woman in the 21st Century.
Understudies by Joanna Gardetta with Blanche Anderson and Stephanie de Whalley. A bitter-sweet comedy written by Joanna Gardetta (Smack the Pony). Understudies follows the trials and tribulations of Beth and Ali: two actors, both alike in dignity but both desperately trying to make the big time. Forced to inhabit the back stage storage cupboard that is their dressing room, they seek to straddle the business known as show.
