When We Were Singing
"There is a touch of comic soap opera in this saga of friends and lovers, career crisis and personal angst. It is a story that switches gears in an instant to get at the heart of what makes people tick. When We Were Singing is an investigation of the friendship between four urban-dwelling lost souls. Set around a series of conversations between these friends, we eavesdrop on the ups and downs of their lives over the course of a week-end. Work, loves, hopes, dreams, fears, failures–the story is pulled from the same source as our own lives. When We Were Singing is a musical like few others."

"The Dissociates takes a darkly comic look at life and death, memory and healing. It is the story of Alex, a 50ish lesbian who finds herself dealing with the aftermath of a recent crisis. Bravely working in her garden, following the advice of her well-meaning psychiatrist, she tries to assess and reassess sometimes with heartbreaking clarity, often with broad strokes of gallows humour, how she got where she is. As she works to repair her garden, six dissociated aspects of her personality come and join her to comment, to help, sometimes to hinder her progress but Alex neither sees nor hears them. Together Alex’s “voices” weave a rich tapestry of a life that has been fragmented and compartmentalized, a life that once remembered, will prove to be her salvation. It is a story about courage, strength, and facing life. It is a story about all of us."
