A series of four theatrical monologues starring Jon Culshaw, Matthew Kelly, Jemma Redgrave and Adrian Scarborough

From writer Peter Barnes (The Ruling Class) comes a selection of four exquisitely crafted monologues, performed by four of our leading actors and filmed on stage at the Theatre Royal Windsor.

Billy & Me starring Jon Culshaw
Directed by Charlotte Peters

For Michael Jennings the only way to fight the voices in his head is to bring them life. In fact he’s made a career from it. Now seemingly alone on an empty stage, Billy, his stage partner of 25 years keeps interrupting him. Which would be fine, except that Billy is a puppet. Billy and Me is a hilarious and daring examination exploring what happens when a ventriloquist lets the puppets take control.

Losing Myself starring Matthew Kelly
Directed by Philip Franks

Adams used to have everything with the world at his feet. Now he’s lost his faith… and his rocking horse. On a solitary bench within the hallowed confines of one of London’s forgotten churchyards Adams sits on a bench for his final conversation with an old friend. With poignancy and profundity he must come to terms with who he has become and where he is going, but it’s going to rain and the bulldozers are moving in.

Rosa starring Jemma Redgrave
Directed by Philip Franks

Dr Rosa Hamilton is tired. After twenty years of battling the system, drowning in paperwork and watching patients fade away in care homes- she’s tired, she’s angry - and she really wants a drink. Especially as she’s about to dictate the most important letter of her life.

A True Born Englishman starring Adrian Scarborough
A World Premiere
Directed by Philip Franks

Leslie has been a footman at Buckingham palace for thirty years. A life of service, a life of discretion... and lifetime of secrets. Originally banned from broadcast by the BBC and never seen before, this world premiere takes you behind the scenes of the most famous of royal palaces for an unforgettable audience with a true born Englishman.
