The Good Doctor, by Neil Simon, directed by Scott Williams. The Good Doctor is a love-letter to Anton Chekhov by American writer Neil Simon.

31 Jan 2012 - 19 Feb 2012
Drowning Fish Productions and The Impulse Company present Sleeping Dogs, by Brenda Gottsche. 'Let sleeping dogs lie...' We all have times when we take that option and hope those hounds stay put. Dr Roz was one of those people. She is a famous, hugely popular radio psychologist who fixes people's problems. Her husband, Leo, is a bestselling crime writer. Just when it seems she’s set to become Britain’s Oprah Winfrey, a letter arrives revealing juicy information they were hiding from the world and each other. The ‘sleeping dogs’ awake and cause chaos. Their son, a member of a radical religious group, the man who is blackmailing them, and the eccentric psychiatrist who is addicted to designer shoes all join in the chaos.
