Any moment the door to Dove and Robin’s house will be smash down and they will disappear forever, for a crime they can’t recall committing. As Dove reminisces about a time when misplaced words weren’t a death sentence, can Robin find a way for them to survive?
Bruised egos and broke, two forgotten rock stars have been thrown an unlikely lifeline; the record executive they befriended the night before bet he would release them a hit album, but there’s a catch; they have to record it together. Coming from very different bands and wrapped up in a caricature of who they used to be, can they overcome their animosity and confront the hurt of a life never quite fulfilled? Is it their past or present they need to escape? Vinyl Encore is full of laughter, live music and the anarchic hope that rock and roll should never die.
Three sisters who have ended up living very separate lives gather to celebrate the eldest's engagement, but as it's her fourth this year, no one is certain if he even exists! As the evening progresses past resentments and old secrets emerge that could derail all their lives. Biting wit and incredible heart, Lipstick and Scones is sure to make you laugh and maybe shed a tear or two.

With no money to pay the rent, he must think of a new scam quick. His flatmate, Rupert Debussy, a bitchy alcoholic and failed actor offers little help.

Can Charlie get rid of his sister? And is his mysterious femme-fatale date all that she seems?
It's mum's birthday. Bringing up three children and now grandchildren in a tense marriage, the Party is finally a chance to celebrate.

Often violent in his parenting, will the news of his father's terminal illness present a chance for reconciliation? Were people of their time or was what's wrong now always been wrong?
