Histrionics by James Butler

(Etcetera Theatre, January 2008)

A staged reading of a new play set in a 16th century tavern, and showcasing the flair for pastiche period dialogue of writer James Butler.

The play ultimately made it to a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival six months later, directed by Benet’s regular collaborator, James Martin Charlton.

Black Dog Day by Sharon Kanolik
(Tristan Bates, February 2008)
Cast: Anola Chase, Paul Etuka.

Performed as part of the Lucky Dogs’ “666” evening of 6 actors performing 6 plays by 6 writers for two nights at the Tristan Bates. The writers had all met through the Royal Court Writers’ Programme. Sharon Kanolik’s 17-minute scene shows an unusual reunion in which a father unwittingly hires his daughter as a prostitute.
