Sisters, Seagulls and Send offs – written and performed by Hayley Riley and Louise Evans

‘Sisters, Seagulls and Send offs’ uses real life experiences of dealing with death, dying and bereavement.  The production includes the notion of taking control, talking openly and making plans regarding end of life choices.  It also explores some of the barriers we face as a society and how we deal with these sensitive issues.

It’s about life, it’s about death, it’s about options and choices.  Beth and Penny have recently lost their father and they have conflicting opinions, opinions of his life and his death.  The two sisters explore permission to grieve, and battle between coping with grief in different ways.  As such, this play gives an insight into the role of death within society, and the emotions surrounding this difficult subject.

Over the Garden Fence – written and performed by Hayley Riley and Louise Evans

Our debut play, ‘Over the Garden Fence’ follows the story of Annabelle and her Gran Dolly.  Annabelle and the audience take on a nostalgic journey through Grans life, sharing memories of happiness, sorrow and joy.  It is a fast paced, uplifting and comical exploration into family, life and relationships that promotes an awareness of dementia that is accessible to all.  This play encourages conversation and engages audiences in the discussion of not only dementia, but the importance of the individual behind the diagnosis.
