“The Day After the Battle” is a re-worked production of “The Day after Battle” by Arthur Aldrich. An English Civil War battle is over. Victors and vanquished have marched away but left behind are people injured in body and mind. Will they ever be able to pick up the pieces of their broken lives?
Followed by :
“Cul-de-Sac” is a comedy, which takes place on Muriel’s sixtieth birthday. Her family, husband Jim, son Brian and daughter in law Alex have arranged a quiet celebration – a meal at an expensive restaurant. But Muriel has gone walk-about. She has been behaving oddly for some time now. Jim and Brian are positive that she’s going senile but Alex seems to understand her mother-in-law’s behaviour. In fact the lives of all four of them are not as serene as they appear at first. Their dilemmas come to the surface as the evening progresses. Is Muriel really any different from the others or could she be one step ahead of them?
