Naked Ambition by Paul McNally
Jack Conroy, an ambitious English record exec has been offered the job he’s always worked for – head of the US division. He flies to New York only to receive the news that an American rival is out to sabotage his appointment. While his future is being decided by the board & chairman, Jack is left alone in a hotel room waiting to hear the outcome. Will he get the job or will he find himself on a plane back to England, humiliated and the laughing stock of the industry? As he waits for the Chairman’s decision isolated and alone in his suite, Jack’s only allies are Kenny, an incompetent bell boy and Gloria, a hooker who has career advice that might help Jack succeed … or possibly fail spectacularly!
Butterscotch by Ribs Norman
Marilyn dreads the postman, Martin can’t communicate, Melissa is wearing a tea cosy and Morris suspects everyone of a serious crime. A touching play about love and regret when time is in short supply.
