Four Monologues:

Her Big Chance 

Aspiring actress Lesley, bored of appearing in walk-on roles, is excited by an opportunity to break into the world of celebrity – but how far is she prepared to go for fame? 

Bed Among the Lentils

Susan, bored of her vicar husband, turns to alcohol and local shopkeeper Ramesh Ramesh to find the solace she can't find elsewhere.

[image]A Chip in the Sugar 

Mild, lonely Graham Whittaker finds life becoming complicated when his mother reunites with old flame Frank Turnbull. Graham becomes increasingly jealous and suspicious when Mr Turnbull achieves an ever-growing hold on Mam. When Frank proposes marriage and suggests Graham moves out of the house and into a hostel, Graham's whole life is turned upside down. But can Graham battle his own demons and convince Mam that Turnbull isn't to be trusted?

A Lady of Letters 

Irene is not afraid to write what's on her mind. But her letters to her MP, the police, even the local chemist, land her in serious trouble and yet ironically set her free.
