It's a case of once, twice, three times a play at Melville Theatre this February and March. Three short plays – all playing on the same night – are being presented under the banner of Summer Shorts, providing a diverse mix of intrigue, comedy and reflections on life.

An Unwritten Page by Angela Pritchard provides a snapshot of life’s hopes and dreams when two friends arrive to help Ben celebrate his 40th birthday. But there is more to Ben than meets the eye with plenty to learn and the question of whether he will ever actually turn 40.

Under The Bright Sun by Norm Foster looks at four people who meet at a bus stop and question their existence – each has some form of amnesia and they question their lives and love.

Bob Charteris is writer and director of That’s What Friends Are For, a mature-age romantic comedy that looks at a terminally-ill woman’s suggestions for those dearest to her. Always thinking of others, Helen suggests her husband Tom and best friend Irene could better enjoy life if they get together.
