Episode 14: Full Stop by Christopher Patrick

ull Stop by Christopher Patrick

Performed by Colin Little, Hazel Ann Crawford, Kirsty Strain & Charlie Graham.

When Jake loses his wife he does what all grieving husbands would do. Buys cheap whiskey and hides in his attic from the in-laws. Will his sister and best friend be able to convince him to come down? And will they have to put up with his wife's family for much longer?

The only thing worse than death is dealing with the family in the aftermath. Thankfully, attics were built for hiding.

Episode 12: Responsible by Eve Nicol

Sam is excited but nervous to leave school and become A Proper Grown Up. She thinks her fun, youthful English teacher, Emma, has got life sorted. But Sam knows little about her private life.

Emma hasn’t never really grown up. Comforting herself with Monster Munch and kids’ cartoons, Emma resists embracing her new obligations as a teacher.

Sam flatters Emma’s fragile self-esteem, but Emma’s returned attention pulls them into a risky relationship that will challenge their ideas of what it means to be an adult.

Growing up can put years on you.

Episode 10: Why I Want To Drink With Boris Johnson or The Entirely Predictable Trials Of Being by Calum McMillan

A broken hearted writer sits down with a pen to rid his pain and right the world. However, he quickly realises he may not know how to do either. In fact, he barely even knows if he can write; it could all be a bunch of tat with some cool one liners.

Who knows?

"I'm struggling to remember the last time I had a good idea. Other than the whisky in the morning that is. That was truly inspired."

'Expecting' explores a woman's struggle to come to terms with her pregnancy against the busybody backdrop of a woman's discussion forum.

The Mackenzie’s are living the high life as Scotland’s most famous reality TV family with their show, Keepin’ Up Wae The Mackenzie’s taking the top spot every year. However, when the show takes a big dip in ratings the producers put into a place a desperate plan to get them back on top……

All it’ll take is a little bit of convincing, and a designer vagina or two.

Ye cannae choose you’re family…..but ye can choose what channel yer oan.

If The Broons met The Kardashians, it would be a little something like this.
