Overview

Life isn't much fun for the two children trapped on Ward One of St Ruth's Hospital for Damaged Eyes in "The Flying Machine." But then a new boy arrives at the hospital and he is soon leading a revolt against Nurse Cakebread's hard regime. Armed with a set of blueprints and a cunning escape plan, he turns everything on the ward upside down. Full of laughs and action "The Flying Machine" is a play of heroic deeds, despicable schemes and acts of amazing bravery. In "Smashed Eggs" - winner of the Arts Council Children's Award in 2003 - Titus and Miranda are being driven crazy by their mum's ridiculous rules. She has a rule for everything: what to have for breakfast, what to wear when mopping and even a timetable for polishing wellingtons. One day, Miranda leads Titus on a journey which changes the way they look at the world forever. What would happen if they disobey mum?
