  • Sophie Ellicott and Louise Wilson in 'Zumba Class' written by Matt Lidis 

Duologue - Jacquie has told her husband she's at Zumba class. She's actually, reluctantly, seeing a progressive therapist for her third session. Peach is a therapist willing to use any new-age technique she can to help her clients. Why Jacquie is struggling to cope with the dull reality of the life she has ended up in and can Peach, with her interesting methods, help?

Monologue - it's 1992. It's 2am. And there's only one moving carousel at baggage claim at Manchester Airport. With only a pigeon for company, Sarah grows increasingly isolated and begins to recall the circumstances that have brought her to be alone staring at unclaimed luggage.
