Babysitting Calvin

It is Katie’s first night out since her baby son Calvin was born. He is now nearly ten months old, and enjoying life. In fact he is quite looking forward to having a cosy night in with the babysitter! However, he is in for a surprise, because the babysitter, Laura, turns out to have an interesting relationship to him, not to mention her lecherous friend Bob, whom she brings along for company. The promised cosy evening turns into something very different…

Keep Calm

Set in the 1950s (ish), Keep Calm is a farce centred around a day in the life of a husband and wife, their baby, their staff and a series of misunderstandings and hapless goings on.

Keep Calm takes us into a hilarious world of chaos and disorder. Where is the baby? Why is the cook doomed to eat all of her meals standing up? And more importantly, can the husband…keep calm?
