Scottish playwright Deborah Klayman (who may be familiar to you as she is one of our regular She Writers, as part of Whoop’n’Wail,) performs three short plays she’s written as part of the Lost Theatre Face to Face festival.
Crossing Lines is a suite of monologue plays that take us inside the mind of stalkers and their victims. Two of these plays, Smash & Grab and Lock Up Your Sons will be performed as part of the Lost Theatre’s July Showcase, along with another short play, Civil.
Smash & Grab: Mike is madly in love with Claire, the beautiful barmaid at his local pub. He hopes their friendship can turn into something more – is it time to let her know?
Lock Up Your Sons: When Mel meets Tim on a night out she thinks she has finally found the man of her dreams. How far should she go for true love?
Civil: The Civil War rages at home, but S can only wait by the phone for news of friends and family.
