Synopsis:
A sinister con man and two ex-convicts have traced the location of a doll, which contains a hidden substance of great value, to the Notting Hill Gate apartment of Sam Henderson and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll into London from Amsterdam. However, after the woman turns up murdered, matters become more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. But just how far will Susy fall into their sinister web of lies and deceit?

Synopsis:
27 Wagons Full of Cotton
Set during the Great Depression, and in the midst of the oppressive heat of summer in Mississippi, this is a play about desperation and revenge. Business has not been going well for Jake and Flora Meighan, the owners of a cotton gin near Blue Mountain. In a desperate attempt to rescue himself from his financial woes, Jake sets fire to the neighbouring Syndicate Plantation,, owned by the young but pragmatic Silva Vicarro. Over a 24-hour period, Silva finds out about Jake’s crime.
How will Silva take the ultimate revenge against Jake? And who is the real victim in this story?

Something Unspoken
Miss Cornelia Scott is a wealthy Southern spinster in her sixties, who is consumed by her desire to be named president of a society club called “ Daughters of the Confederation”.
The play opens on the morning of the society club’s elections and Cornelia, too terrified to attend the vote in case she isn’t elected unanimously, sits at her table eating breakfast. Her secretary—a woman in her forties named Grace and who has been with her for 15 years accompanies her. There is a strange tension between the two women ”something unspoken” simmering beneath the surface of their conversation. When Cornelia learns the outcome of the election, the situation between she and Grace comes to a head in a confrontation between them.
