DING-DONG (A Bit of a Farce)

Cast: Buchan Lennon, Hilary Lyon, Gail Watson and Clare Waugh

Living in the same street doesn’t mean that you inhabit the same universe.

Being neighbours in a well-heeled part of Edinburgh, Susie and Jennifer have the same postcode but share little else.  A minor incident involving Susie’s teenage son exposes major differences in almost every other respect and near farcical events trigger a darkly comic domestic crisis of epic proportions.
