Fifteen Minute Shorts

Muffin Man
first produced: 'Short Trips' at the Alma Tavern 2013
Theatre West

An awkward meeting, two people who don’t know how to talk about what they really feel - if ever an encounter had BRIEF written all over it, it should surely be this one…

"Funny, astute, truthful, witty, beautifully structured, and a lovely playfulness that had the audience beaming with joy."

Ripped Script Theatre Company

Theatre West

The park-and-ride is a place where strangers pass each other silently at the end of the day… and for surprising assignations too, and every ending can lead to a new start and a change of journey.
