THE WORKS:
 
“The Song of the Calm of the Storm” by Anna Schneider
An elderly couple in a war zone search for their grandson.  As they recall their last day and past together, the memories bleed into each other.  The only way to be together is to keep telling their story, over and over again.
 
"Rou" by Dominic McKenzie
The school dance is fast approaching, so Rou enlists the help of Dad to help him find a date. But Dad is warped with the thought that origami is the way to his wife’s heart and tutor Grace is making her advances.
 
“Between Love and War” by Christopher Patrick
A young soldier from WW2 is forced to try and piece together his long-forgotten memory when confronted by two people from his past. In his search for the truth, his sanity is pushed to breaking point...
 
“‘Till Death’ll Do Us” by Mhairi Quinn
A comedy highlighting the effects of the recession on a lifelong marriage.  Having been ‘blissfully’ married for 35 years, George and Cathy now find themselves in each other’s pockets. The new living situation forces the pair to question when it was they forgot they were living.
 
“The Missing of Roanoke” by Sean Robertson
One of the first American colonies was on an island called Roanoke, but within five years everybody had vanished. This is the story of a family who struggle to survive as their entire world crumbles around them.
