SYNOPSIS

Contractions:
​Emma’s been seeing Darren. She thinks she’s in love. Her boss thinks she’s in breach of her contract. The situation needs to be resolved. An ink-black comedy set in an office about the boundaries between work and play.

Hello Darkness, My Old Friend:
A bench in a park somewhere in England. Phil is trying to accept the past, present and possible future, as we follow him working his way through loss, loneliness and forgotten happiness. With the help of his ex-wife Sarah and his son Joe he learns how to deal with what is pressing down on him and finds a way of completely letting go, finally making peace with the past.
