The Cat, Lally Katz , 2015 single work drama

'Katz on cats: Owning a cat is not easy. Co-owning a cat with your ex is less easy. Co-owning a smart-talking, irritable, meddling cat with your ex is comedy. If this sounds to you like the kind of thing Lally Katz (Stories I Want to Tell You in Person, Neighbourhood Watch) should write, you’re right. There is no-one else who does charming, funny and unlikely quite like Katz.' (Production summary)

The Dog, Brendan Cowell , 2015 single work drama

'It could be called Two Men, One Woman, a Park and a Dog – and everyone knows that nothing breaks the ice like a cute dog. Brendan Cowell’s funny new play paints a not-so-flattering portrait of the tricky line between mateship and romance, and of the insatiable appetite of Jack Russell terriers for the most disgusting things they can find.'
