Crossed Lines

An Evening of One Act Plays

by Various Authors

12 - 16 July 2016


Three plays for a summer's evening, exploring misunderstandings and reconciliation in a range of relationships.

To Have and To Hold by Lorraine Forrest-Turner

Director: Vic Carr

Assistant Director: Jerome Foley

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.

Bottles with Baskets On by Mike Tibbetts

Director: Claire Hale

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.

Lifelines by Amy Rosenthal

Director: Craig Russell

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.
