Daisy Pulls It Off
By Denise Deegan

It's 1927 and Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be allowed access to the hallowed halls of Grangewood School for Young Ladies.

Enthusiastic and plucky to the last, Daisy finds herself struggling against unspeakable snobs Sybil and Monica and their ghastly schemes to get her expelled.  Ably assisted by her new best friend, madcap and self-styled poet, Trixie Martin, Daisy finds herself caught up in a series of irresistible adventures including the search for missing treasure.  Can they work out the mysterious clues and save the school from closure? Or will they be beaten by the enigmatic Mr Scoblowski?

The Lady in the Van
by Alan Bennett

Charity begins at the bottom of the driveway...

Adapted by the author from his autobiographical memoir, The Lady in the Van tells the story of Miss Mary Shepherd, whom Alan Bennett first came across when she was living in the street near his home in Camden Town. Taking refuge with her van in his garden originally for three months, she ended up staying fifteen years. Funny, touching and unexpectedly spectacular, The Lady in the Van marked the return to the stage of one of our leading playwrights.

They Came from Mars and Landed Outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in Time for the Townswomen's Guild's Coffee Morning
by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Junior

The Farndale Avenue ladies attempt lift off with their Dramatic Society's unique production of a sci fi thriller. Needless to say, high tech effects going awry and the limited talents of some group members ensure that the cast remains firmly on the ground some more than others. As ever, the resourceful Mrs. Reece brilliantly circumnavigates pitfalls as she steers the company into orbit and through space to genteel tea on Mars, where the nail biting action is interrupted to present the Flower Arranging Award.

My Husband's Nuts
by Devon Williamson

Barbara's husband is missing on the family farm. Jack, your stereotypical farmer, suffers a bump to the head, causing him to, as the play's name suggests, go a tad nutty. The havoc this creates leads to many an unexpected event and awkward moment. On his return he is a nervous wreck and will not leave the house... he is suffering from 'agriphobia' (the fear of agriculture), and is convinced that he is Hiroo Onoda - a Japanese soldier holding out on an island after World War Two. Barbara's husband is, well... nuts. The only people she can trust with this information is the new vet and the village idiot. How will they restore Jack's mind without the help of the medical profession... or common sense?
