WALKIES

1M/1F

Conventional, middle-aged Jen goes for her daily walk in the nearby woods and meets Steve, a straight-talking vagrant.  He invites her back to his home, a large cardboard box set among a clump of fir trees. Hesitant, but desperately wanting to widen her horizons, Jen accepts.  So develops a bond between two people whose backgrounds are widely different.

 But there are questions: why does Steve insist that she owns a dog when Jen insists that she does not?  Are things really as they seem? Or has Steve an agenda that Jen knows nothing about … until that is - she looks deep into the corner of his box.

A play with bite!

 After leading a secular life, Charles, decides to take Holy Orders. He seeks spiritual guidance from Grayson, his local priest and to whom he is attracted. On the eve of Charles' ordination, Grayson tells him that he is to be married. This acts as a catalyst, as Charles is now forced to confront his feelings for Grayson.

 In the second scene, Charles has become a curate in a parish, carrying out, in a somewhat perfunctory manner, his ecclesiastical duties. It is the visit from a young, woman parishioner seeking advice, who inadvertently gives Charles the help and comfort that he needs in order to face his demons and come to terms with his sexuality.
