About

Greatest Britain by Harry Cowper

‘Settling in a new minister is a bit like house training a Labrador. You just have to keep them warm and fed, give them a comfy seat, and make sure they don’t shit on the carpet.’ A new parliament means a new start for British Politics. For junior minister Rupert, this is the chance to really make a difference. He might not know much about the process of power, the people of his country, or even what his job is, but he is determined to something. His senior advisor Julia, however, has other plans. As the government lurches from one crisis to another, Rupert soon learns that sacrifices must be made to get ahead and that no-one is irreplaceable... Greatest Britain is a satirical comedy about power, nationalism, and corruption.

The script contains strong language.

Those Who Can't Do by Seth Kruger & Elliott Wright

Those Who Can’t Do is a 50-minute anxiety-comedy satirising the private education sector. Sam is a working-class English graduate and a trainee teacher at St. Lawrence’s, a cutting-edge independent secondary school in North London. Over the course of Sam’s first parent-teacher evening, she is gradually ground down by pushy parents, privileged kids, and the all-seeing-eye of the Head.

Strong language and sexual references throughout. Discussions of rape and sexual assault is in the script.
