THE INFERNAL SERPENT
By David Gerow
Tue 31st March – Sat 4th April

Meet Adam and Eve: devoted snake rights activists who are getting nowhere.
When a charming stranger arrives with radical ideas, they're forced to decide how far they’ll go for their cause. The Infernal Serpent puts a devilishly modern twist on an old story to consider why - and how - we protest.

CELESTIAL BODY
By Morna Pearson
Tue 7th - Sat 11th April

Laura looks to the celestial body to change her life.
Hamish buries a past trauma deep in his mind. Bruce joins a gym to try and win back his wife. They all share a past but one of them doesn’t know it yet.

ROSE
By Lorna Martin
Tue 14th - Sat 18th April

Italy, 1984. Scotland’s Rose Reilly scores for Italy, helping them win the women’s World Cup.
Earlier, in Scotland, Rose is expelled from school, sacked from her job, handed a lifetime ban by the Scottish Football Association. The incredible true story of a girl from Ayrshire who refused to play by society’s discriminatory rules.

THE STORM
By Owen Whitelaw
Tue 21st – Sat 25th April

During a live broadcast, a studio audience gets more than it bargains for when the truth behind a best-selling author's success is exposed.
A darkly comic drama exploring the impact of fake news both in the past and in the present.

EXQUISITE CORPSE
By Conor O'Loughlin
Tue 28th Apr – Sat 2nd May

When Iona, a theme park attendant makes a grim discovery at her workplace, her manager Frank presents her with an impossible choice.
One thing is for sure, it’s not all fun at the fair and this certainly isn’t going to look good on her performance review.

MARY AND ADA SET THE WORLD TO RIGHTS
By Jane Livingstone
Tue 5th – Sat 9th May

1833. Mary Somerville is a self-educated, married women from Fife.
Ada Lovelace is the wild 17-year-old daughter of Lord Byron. Both are among the most respected thinkers of their day. When a brutal accusation causes Mary to doubt her entire life’s work, the two great minds must come together.

THE SILVER SUPERHEROES
By Morna Young
Tue 12th – Sat 16th May

Do you know how many lives we saved? And what do we get?
A bloody state pension.
Strongman and Lady X were our 70s superheroes. They saved countless lives and ended disasters before we even knew about them. Then came the pains of old age. But now it’s time for them to step out of retirement… because one final adventure awaits.

MILKSHAKE
By Rob Drummond
Tue 19th – Sat 23rd May

A right-wing politician and a left-wing activist meet in a court-mandated restorative justice session after the latter throws a milkshake at the former.
When the moderator doesn’t show they take it upon themselves to conduct the session without supervision. How difficult can it be? After all, it was only a milkshake. It’s not like anyone died.
