Only one project was developed with theplaygroup: a successful series of new plays written for the café-bar of Farnham Maltings in Surrey. Each piece was a two-hander and ran for two nights accompanied by a light meal. The season ran through January, February and March 2012 with each of the plays directed by Joe Douglas.
