Through a telescope In his attic, a spellbound man follows the course of the comet ISON, enthralled. But isolation starts to dissolve his reality with the arrival of some new eight legged friends . .
A spider scuttles across the ceiling of a psychiatric ward. But minutes ago this spider was a young woman. She's once again trapped. Magical transformation or supernatural malice?
"Extremely well-acted and the unusual writing took me to places I wasn't expecting to go . . eerie, but a vein of bizarre comedy prevents either piece from becoming bleak . . incredibly poetic and brought to life by well-judged changes in lighting . . The writing is incredibly immersive and sensual . . both pieces wrap the audience in their haunting atmosphere."
Simon Fearn, Broadway Baby
" . . Intense, obsessive, compulsive and disturbing . . The fundamental essence of simple story telling shines out with these two short performances."
