Last night I tried not to be shy, just as an experiment for one night - and with catastrophic results. 17 year old Callum is proud to be shy and he thinks you should be too, because what this noisy, crazy world needs right now is a bit more self-restraint. The Shy Manifesto is a bittersweet coming-of-age comedy drama about a shy boy who is fed up of constantly being told to come out of his shell. Tonight he is to address an audience of radical shy comrades and incite the meek to finally rise up and inherit the earth. But memories of the previous night's drunken escapades at a classmate's end-of-term party keep intruding, and threaten to upend the fragile identity he has created for himself. Callum delivers his manifesto, exploring adolescence, isolation, self-loathing and sexuality. His irreverent lightness of touch, and multi- rolling as the other characters in his story endear him to the audience, encouraging us that we, too, can be proud to be shy. The Shy Manifesto is a solo piece that takes the experience of being shy as its central subject- something which has rarely been explored in drama, and yet which touches on many audience members lives.

When Alex, his enigmatic dog Boris and his best mate Conna meet up with the new girls in school, Maddie and Bex, they witness a bizarre explosion at his reclusive neighbour Tom’s house. They are first on the scene and discover him lying hurt beside a strange mechanical sculpture, The Hippo-Chronos. Urgently, the dazed old Greek confronts Alex with a fantastic story which shocks the normally level-headed boy to the core: his father is not only alive and well, but trapped in Alexandria – in 48 BC!Over a period of days, the four listen while Tom tries to convince them of how the design and development of an ancient time-machine was entirely possible in the Great Library of Alexandria, just before it mysteriously burned to the ground. Is Tom going senile? Is there another more logical explanation to Alex’s dad’s disappearance? Or, could the whole intriguing tale somehow, just possibly be true after all? The Hippo-Chronos is a 2,000 year old mystery adventure which opens up a whole ancient, yet rational world for readers aged 14 and over. It is not a stuffy history lecture, but a bittersweet tale and very human adventure story of both modern and ancient youth. The story will be concluded in The Hippo-Tempus AKA The Alexandria Key.
