A new version of my short play, Gardening Leave, was performed as part of the AWL Showcase on 25th February.
Bob: The first thing I want to say is this. I need to get back in the saddle.
Tom: The saddle?

Take the helm. Grab hold of the joystick. Work. I need to work, Tom. It's not the money, although - You see work for me is a compulsion. An imperative. A compulsive imperative if you like. It's something I have to do. Work is my life, Tom ...
