We Three: A one act play written by Olwen Wymark

Jimmy Shoe: A one act play written by Derek Egan
Two women from very different backgrounds meet and become friends over their market stalls. They are both trying to make ends meet in difficult times by selling whatever they can to whoever they can. They learn about each other’s lives with sympathy and laughter and the oddball customers who arrive just add to their fun.
