Two one-act plays by Laurence Phillips. Ideal as a double bill or as individual festival presentations. Shhh! and Departures.
The curtain rises on ... an audience. Six couples with unanswered questions.
Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. This evening's performance will begin in one minute. One minute? Surely no time to resolve the day's business before settling down to enjoy the concert ... or play.
Women and Airports are a potent combination. A woman is like a doctor: she is ever on call; never off-duty; always required to have an emergency back-up supply of energy and resourcefulness. An airport is the only force on the planet more powerful than a woman. For 45 glorious minutes after check-in nobody can call her back to her responsibilities.
As the voices say in the play: "Once you've passed Passports there's no coming back. After Departures there's no coming back".
(Shhh! 6 men, 6 women, plus 3-6 other smaller speaking roles; Departures 8 women, 1-3 men, general chorus)
