Anyone with a programme sent out in September could be forgiven for thinking that we had a piece by Sam South coming up on December 6th. Unfortunately, that piece has been postponed, but I am happy to say that a worthy replacement has been found, in the shape of Egress by Stephen Dinsdale.

This is quite a coup for us. Stephen experienced a spectacular success when his one and only stage play Anorak of Fire was a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe back in the Nineties. It's been touring the world and elsewhere ever since. It's constantly being revived, has always been in print, and there was even a film. No doubt somebody somewhere once made tee-shirts and coffee mugs. Indeed, I think it's fair to say that Anorak was probably the most successful one act play... ever. Since then, though... nothing. Writer's block? Or just one long extended cruise? Either way, it's a long-awaited return.

The last two years the final script of the year went on win the Cobb Cup. Can it happen three years' running? Come along on Monday and find out.
