A series of one-act plays in English where misunderstandings about the past may lead to an uncertain future for the characters. The sketches include 'Night' by Harold Pinter, 'Norma' by Alan Owen and our award-winning production of 'Death of a Clown' by Paul Beard. The final piece, 'Ruby of Elsinore' by Bruce Kane, is a comedy about the confessions of the characters from 'Hamlet' to Ruby, the castle's hairdresser.
