The craft and joy
that soap writers used to provide is no longer with us. The manner, beauty and
poetry of ordinary life - which, from time to time, rewarded us with something
uncommonly special - has been lost, to be replaced by the big businesses that
we allow to lurch forever onwards towards the next money-spinning, heavily trailed
murder, assault, man-made disaster or breakfast-chat-show settee appearance.
Our self belief and
our faith - wherever it may lie - is being changed before our eyes.

Pete has written satirical sketches for radio (BBC Radio 4's
"This Week"), comedy sketches for ITV1 (first series of "Shoot The Writers"),
and has sketches featured in the topical, weekly fringe show "The News Revue."
Amongst other work currently being undertaken are longer, satirical and political
pieces for another stage revue, currently in production. Pete is part of the
Warehouse Theatre Croydon's Writers' Workshop, and is independently working
on a full-length stage play, which should go into production next year. Also
a composer, Pete's original music has featured in corporate productions (in
a boardroom near you) and some radio advertisements.
Maggie Inchley is a graduate of the Mountview Acadamy directing
course. Last year her production of Edward Albee's "The Zoo Story"
won the Acting Excellence award at the Edinburgh Festival. Maggie will be taking
two productions to Edinburgh this year: Sam Shepard's "True West",
and "Superheroes", a new play by David Spicer based on the protest
group "Fathers for Justice". Previous productions include "Life
x 3" by Yasmina Reza at The Cockpit, Howard Brenton's "Bloody Poetry",
and David Edgar's "Nicholas Nickleby".
Big Brother - Final Destination
Written by Suzy Enoch
Directed by Shaun Nethercott
Destination shows us the next stage in Reality Television. Imagine the contestants
are not playing for something they want, but something they need, where we as
"the voting public" decide who deserves to live or die, where what
someone does in their life determines how valuable they are.
In this house all
the contestants are ill, and the ultimate prize is the medical treatment they

Suzy Enoch has written plays, short stories, poems and sketches
ever since she was a child at the tender age of 5, all of which have been relegated
to a large box with the sticker "Must do something with when I have time"
on top. Now at the tender age of 27 and finding herself in possession of a theatre
company, she realised that if she were to have something produced there would
be no better time than this, so, still having no time at all, she drank a huge
amount of coffee and wrote a play.
Shaun trained as an actor at Italia Conti and this is Shaun’s
professional directorial debut. Previously he spent several years directing
amateur productions throughout the south west. Amongst these productions were
"Miss Julie", "A Street Car Named Desire" and "Whose
Life Is It Anyway" at the Phoenix Arts Centre in Exeter.
