Three new one-act plays reacting to Noël Coward's Tonight at 8.30.

By Jenny Ayres, Emma Harding, and Morna Young.

"She's been coming here every Sunday for the past fifty years and he still hasn't turned up."

The playwrights of these three funny, moving and provocative plays were chosen from 390 entrants to write a contemporary female response to Noel Coward's Tonight at 8.30.

Jenny Ayres' Glimpse is inspired by Coward's Still Life.

It is the story of a woman whose history holds too much for her to leave behind.

In a world that never stops, are we brave enough to wait? What might we glimpse if we miss the train?

Emma Harding's The Thing Itself reacts to Coward's Shadow Play.

When the sun fails to come up one morning, Vic and Simone must face the dark.

But what emerges from the shadows?

Truth or illusion?

Morna Young's Smite is inspired by Coward's The Astonished Heart.

It is a story of buried answers, blind hearts, and life after loss.
