Fridge! by Polly Churchill. 
Directed by Gavin Dent

A funny, entertaining, loud and enjoyable show for kids about the environment?! Is that even possible? You bet! Come and see the impossible happen! When Rosie and Luke are being babysat by their annoying, wasteful teenage big brother, they discover that with a mixture of magic, imagination and chaos (along with a very special rainbow feather duster) there may just be a way to get him to finally “SHUT THE FRIDGE!” (Particularly if all the kids join in and shout as loud as humanly possible!) Hilarious, interactive (not in the computer way) and even educational, come and join us on a wonderful journey to save the planet.

Two Fish by Steve Casey. 
Directed by Chris Lawson

Traditional fisherman John is the last of a dying breed. Unsustainable fishing, wind changes and other climactic factors are preventing him from living the life he was born for. John's wife Helen is at her wits end. John's way of life is seemingly dying out, but can two fish swimming against the tide create or inspire change? Two Fish explores the economic implications of climate change on a coastal community and the moral and ethical choices we face when our circumstances change.

Fracture by Steve Casey. 
Directed by Alex Murphy

Mulverhill is an ambitious career politician and MP, but when he agrees to arch-capitalist Mitch Raynor exploring for shale gas in his constituency, he is confronted with a moral dilemma he didn't expect to have to deal with in office. Fracture is a comment on one man's moral awakening as well as the energy industry's seeming incompatibility with democracy.
