Really … Read More No Harm Done by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

Explorers by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

It’s all about scientific integrity isn’t it? It’s that simple. But not when it gets personal.

Rowena. She just wants to make a phone call. Poor Rowena is getting on a bit. She’s also rather bad-tempered, especially when she wants to call ‘her Colin’ and the phone doesn’t work. Strange, because someone already came to fix it. And she can’t even call the repair man because – you guessed it – the phone doesn’t work. But then someone else turns … Read More Rowena by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

Ilsa by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

Ilsa – I should like to know more about you. This is a play where you the audience can decide what’s happening. It’s very interesting and in many ways quite sad. I have listened to the views of the actors but here is my take. Please note this is just my humble interpretation. For me this is set at the very end of the … Read More Ilsa by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

The Last Minute Play by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic

When you are really busy it’s time for the actors to improvise. And they really do. Absolutely hilarious The Last Minute Play has some of my favourite lines. “Is that a new car…”“….lime green….really brings out your eyes Pitrum.”“Shame I’ve only got the one really.”“Beautiful eye though.” “It’s always easier to recover from grief when it makes you filthy, stinking rich.” And of course … Read More The Last Minute Play by Cat on a Piano Productions / Theatrephonic
