Growing up with four complainers for brothers, Will Woodman has a hard time getting an audience for his own troubles. He has to wait in line to gripe to his mom--and that leaves his dad. But since his dad is so busy, Will has to defer to his older (and faster) brother Marty. Will decides that what he really needs is his own grown-up to complain to. And he has the perfect guy for the job--someone who's a good listenener and has a lot of free time: Grandad. But swapping sob stories with Grandad doesn't prove to be as satisfying as Will thought. Grandad has tons of pathetic stories to choose from, and one is worse than the next! But when Will hears the legend of the worst boy in the world, he knows he has finally hit the jackpot....

Anyway. I was just wondering if you had any jobs at all? . . . Yeah . . . like . . . media. Something to do with media stuff . . . Where am I based? Well, currently Herefordshire but . . . sorry . . . that's too far away . . . too far away from what? . . . Oh . . . ok. Paul is trying to find a job. Snowy is trying to find himself. But when Snowy stumbles across an ailing cow stuck in a local field, he ropes Paul into trying to help the cow, either to improve its lot or put it out of its misery. What follows is a hilarious procession of failed suffocations, experiments with a saw and trip to the train tracks in this funny and moving black comedy about friendship, unemployment and a cow called Sandy. Milked premiered in a production by Pentabus Theatre Company in November 2013. This edition is published to coincide with the revival and national tour, beginning February 2015.

It's forty million miles. Two and a half years, yeah? It takes a radiowave - right? Travelling at the speed of fucking light, 13 minutes, to get back from Mars. So . . . if anything goes wrong - anything at all - out there . . . they're really . . . they're on their own, you know? When Earth is the loneliest planet, where else is there to go? Paul is a specialist in cognitive behaviour, tasked with designing a twenty-year mission to Mars. Daniel is a husband and new father struggling with the reality of marriage and the monotony of everyday life. Nat is a twin sister, disillusioned by the world's obsession with space travel and sorry that she didn't say goodbye. And Amy asks a lot of questions . . . Following his critically acclaimed The Empire at the Royal Court, and The Swan at the National Theatre, DC Moore's Another Place is a compelling play about our obsession to uncover the secrets of space, and the tragedy of what we leave behind. Full of dark humour, razor-sharp wit and intricately portrayed characters, this is a gripping play about what it means to be human. Another Place received its world premiere at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on 6 November 2014.
