Three remarkable short plays for one (female) actor.
Jordan by Anna Reynolds with Moira Buffini
The true story of Shirley Jones, who kills her baby boy, Jordan, rather than have him taken away by his abusive father.
The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret by Catherine Johnson
The alternating stories of two women (played by the same actress), both of whom ‘lose’ their sons – one murdered, the other a runaway.
Unsuspecting Susan by Stewart Permutt
The story of Susan – whose life revolves around her dogs, am-dram, bell-ringing and village gossip – and her adult son who’s converted to Islam.
