"Man Across the Way" is a dazzling, anarchic new work about surveillance, tap-dancing and the new world order. Fraser and Dougie are cops carrying out surveillance on the man across the way. They suspect him of involvement in the recent terrorist attack on the city. But are their motives entirely pure? "Magpie Park" contains a Harvey Nicks store detective with a dodgy past and a florist with a missing sister. What brings them together in a room at The Queens Hotel? Part mystery, part romance, the play follows the two from Briggate's bright lights to the birds of Hyde Park.
