The Ceasefire Babies
Written by Fiona Doyle
Performed by Lady Manners School

How do we form our allegiances and beliefs? Do we make our own decisions, or do we inherit them? Can a cycle of ideology and disagreement be broken? And who can take the first step?

The annual bonfire preparations are underway; Mikey’s coming home from the Centre and his sister Jamie cannot wait. But there is change in the air and not everyone’s ready for it. Jamie wants to reignite her father and uncle’s old conflicts, but Mikey and their friends must decide whether to take hold of their own destinies, or allow the ghosts of the past to dictate their futures.

The Blue Electric Wind
Written by Brad Birch
Performed by Vicious and Delicious 

When people at school start forgetting things, Scott wonders if he’s the only one who’s noticed. He and some of the school’s misfits seem to be the only ones who can see what’s happening.

Is it the weather? Is it a virus? They must join forces to try and work out what is causing everyone in town to lose all sense of who they are.

The Blue Electric Wind is about why we remember what we do; it’s about bravery and about growing up.

Running time: About 2 hours and 5 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
