The Stern Head Mystery
A Bentley / Breeze Adventure
(steam radio version)

To coincide with Wyntercon 2017 Afterthought Theatre and Studio1919 present a heroes and monsters adventure comedy.

Sitting on a cliff top shrouded in mist and mystery … the Stern Head Conservatoire, a finishing school where the daughters of super rich are well and truly finished.

Every modern facility the 1920s has to offer, from Miss Willowbark’s debutante assault course to the school abattoir.

When a girl is killed and another driven mad, undercover chap Courtney Bentley persuades the intrepid Mrs Lorna Breeze to infiltrate the school as the new escapology mistress.

She will need all her skills to survive and foil the villainous plot that threatens to unleash an unspeakable horror…

A modern comic book story set in the 1920s and presented in the style of a 1950s radio serial.

Thomas Everchild

Originally produced by Afterthought Theatre Productions.

The plays are now available to other companies.

It is a sequence of one-act plays / monologues for women, the plays were originally performed as a single 120minute show (including interval) by Philippa Hammond, but they have since been performed together by different performers and as individual 25minute plays.

The Glimpse plays are flexible enough to be performed in large or small venues and at varying lengths.

Glimpse has an excellent track record and reviews.

Glimpse consists of separate one woman pieces which can be performed separately, or together in any combination.

Each play is 25 minutes, so a production may be mounted from a single segment up to a full 100 minutes plus interval.
A full production may be mounted with a single voice or up to four performers.

The plays glimpse the lives of four characters from different points in history.

The plays:

An Honorary Man (Drama based on a tragic historical story of Hypatia in 450AD)

Turning The Handle (Vintage Naughty Romantic Comedy that gives an unusual twist to a story set in the early days of cinema)

Little Girls Like To Kiss (Thriller in the Film-Noir style, but told from a very different point of view)

Backstage Whispers (Comedy Of Catastrophe set backstage at an Edinburgh Fringe show)
