Stage 2: beryl and the meeting
Beryl by Lesley-Ann Reilly
Frank, a sensitive loner, is haunted by the memories of his past. Driven by an urge to overcome these, he avails of the private cross-dressing services of Beryl. As their stories unfold, both characters must unmask themselves before the other and the true purpose of their meeting becomes clear. As both characters face painful truths about their desires and fears, a final revelation brings their conflicting energies to a dangerous point until there can only be space for one inside Beryl's rundown bedsit.

The Meeting by Gráinne Curistan
That meeting that we’ve all been to. The one featuring an array of interesting colleagues that make up an office workplace; the crazy one, the grumpy one, the smart-ass one, the eager beaver and the long suffering glue that holds the place together. This piece brings these characters together in a meeting scenario where they can lay all their craziness out on the table. Until it takes a nasty turn and the flip chart gets it!
