Write Now - New writing season at The Brockley Jack Studio Theatre 16th February - 6th March 2010
 
Compression By Joy Wilkinson directed by Jennifer Lunn produced by Sam Hoyle Fighting By Tom Green directed by Kate Bannister The Bitch from Brixton By Kate Gallon and Kate-Lynn Hocking directed by Mark Leipacher produced by Darren Batten
Ever since he was born, a terrible gift has cut Robin off from those around him. Today that may change. This is Robin's last chance to propose to the woman he loves, but he has to get to Machu Picchu to do it. And how can he cross the world, when he can't even get out of his bedsit?
'Compression' is a funny and moving new play about the voices in our heads that hold us back, and how one singular man talked them around.

Two soldiers flee from an ambush in the middle of the night. They think it's just a military exercise but the arrival of a wounded colleague suggests that the fighting is for real. So who is behind it?
And are they out there still, hunting them down?
'Fighting' is a provocative new drama that compels us to question what we can rely on and whose account of the truth we should believe.

Open and shut cases are rarely what they seem, Ruth Ellis, the so-called 'Bitch from Brixton' is hanged after being found guilty of the murder of her lover. Yet beyond the tabloid controversy lurks a seedy underbelly of espionage, power and betrayal in 1950's London.

Using court archives and biographical accounts, this thrilling new play offers Ruth Ellis a powerful and contemporary voice.
