Kitchen, Vanessa Badham , single work drama humour
A laugh-out-loud black comedy that gets too close for comfort then punches you square in the stomach. Two human resource managers play out a blitzkrieg battle of the sexes where anything goes in the war for supremacy. Owen has lost his job, Helene has lost her Lean Cuisine. As the claustrophobia in the kitchen heightens, so do the stakes.
Capital, Vanessa Badham , single work drama satire
Jim and Bob are public-relations specialists in damage control, but an assignment from the US military challenges even their talents for 'spin'. Pan-Arabic news service Al Jazeera is about to broadcast digital video of crack-addled US marines raping and murdering children in an Afghani war orphanage; Jim and Bob have fifteen minutes to make it look positive. Their time starts ... now!
Morning on a Rainy Day, Vanessa Badham , single work drama humour
Pol and Ben are best friends and old lovers. Pol is getting married, but can she and Ben give up nine years of 'comfort sex' so easily?
