    A Respectable Widow Takes to Vulgarity by Douglas Maxwell
    Mourning her husband’s death, Annabelle strikes up an unlikely relationship with his potty-mouthed employee, Jim. As she enters into Jim's un-finishing school, Annabelle finally finds her own voice and gets herself heard. This riotous explosion of expletives addresses how we express and process our grief.

    Clean by Sabrina Mahfouz
    Welcome to the world of London’s top female underground criminals on their biggest job yet, an international heist. Zainab, Chloe and Katya are three fast-talking, no-nonsense criminal heroines who mean business. Clean, by poet and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz, is razor-sharp and effortlessly slick.

    Developed from readings as part of our Herald Angel winning Dream Plays series during the 2012 Fringe Festival, and a sellout during the Fringe Festival 2013, Clean and A Respectable Widow Takes to Vulgarity will transfer to New York later this Spring. Part of Made in Scotland
