Three Plays on a theme "Crossed Lines" An evening of one act plays exploring misunderstandings and reconciliation in a range of relationships.

To Have and To Hold

by Lorraine Forrest-Turner

Organising a family funeral is difficult and past differences are re-ignited in the emotional fallout. The deliberate misunderstandings between a mother and daughter are reconciled through a new version of family history remembered by the aunt.

Directed by Vic Carr

Bottles with Baskets On

On the eve of the wedding, the groom-to-be arrives with a raffia-covered bottle of wine for his prospective father in law. As the wine flows, surprising family secrets are revealed.

Directed by Claire Hale

Lifelines by Amy Rosenthal

When Robert misdials, Annie is ready to hang up on what she thinks is a nuisance caller interrupting her indulgent sobbing. This accidental telephone call is the start of a distant, yet significant telephonic relationship. Both Robert and Annie are plagued by love troubles and enjoy the opportunity to let off steam, take a few tips and perhaps begin again.

Directed by Craig Russell
