Easy Stages 

A Strong Smell of Burning

Directed by Karen Salt

Directed by Allie White


The stage is set, almost, for an amateur production of Hamlet.

Geri and her backstage crew attempt to master the intricacies of stage management as mayhem surrounds an ill advised candlestick.


With hundreds of bloodthirsty Danish savages charging about outside, a humble

Anglo Saxon family faces an uncertain future. Can the stranger in the cowshed bring a change to their fortunes or will he be their downfall?
