Play is a comedy which takes inspiration from all sorts of theatrical genres and is a nightmare journey through the mind of playwright Brian Simpson, who finds himself on opening night with the audience in situ but with no play! Through dreamlike sequences and hilarious interruptions from family and bizarre characters, is determined to get a show on stage, created in front of the eyes of the audience.

WATSON - The Final Problem performed by Tim Marriott (Brittas Empire)

It is 1894. Twice wounded in Afghanistan and a survivor of typhoid fever, Watson is alone. His beloved wife Mary has died and his great companion is gone, lost at the Reichenbach Falls. But dark rumours gather in the gutters of London, and it’s time to set the record straight. So Watson tells his tale of a race across Europe, pursued by the Napoleon of Crime… Moriarty.

SHELL SHOCK performed by Tim Marriott (Brittas Empire)


Shell Shock is adapted from the original diary by Gulf War veteran Neil 'Blower' Watkin.

SHELL SHOCK is set in 2016. After over 30 years of service, Tommy returns home. After all he’s seen, fitting into civilian life will be a breeze, right? But as shopping malls, mobile phone zombies, post office queues and Ikea customer service conspire against him, nothing is safe from his indignant outrage. A roller coaster ride through PTSD and out the other side, Shell Shock is often humorous, sometimes provocative but always poignant. Sometimes it’s hard to open up about mental fitness, but as Tommy says; “It’s no good bottling it up. It’s time to talk”.
