Tiny Dynamite: When memory takes hold, when chaos takes over and when the electricity between us becomes overwhelming. An impossible love story is given a second chance and three scorched characters are about to learn that lightning does strike twice. Splendour: Inside a beautiful state residence on the edge of a city, four women wait. They talk: films, Prada, chilli vodka, anything. Outside civil war looms ever nearer. With wit and delight in the unusual, Splendour encompasses both the cruel veneer of our lives and the beating heart within. Tender: In a city of fast talk and chance encounters, how much faith can we put in other people? Abi Morgan's acerbic play takes a scalpel to modern love and friendship. Lovesong: The story of one couple, told from two different points in their lives - as young lovers in their twenties and as worldly companions looking back on their relationship. Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness. All relationships have their ups and downs; the optimism of youth becomes the wisdom of experience.Love is a leap of faith. 27: Dr Richard Garfield has given Ursula a difficult choice.
She is the Mother Superior in waiting of a convent that has been given the opportunity to take part in his revolutionary scientific study. Ursula must weigh up the value of preserving her faith, versus embracing science.
