A Man of Letters

Frank, a well-worn northerner, with aspirations to write spy thrillers - this plots of which he acts out when he is alone - who has erected signs for a commercial letterer for twenty-five years. On a ledge of his boss's building, assisted by trainee Alan, he attempts to spell out the company name "Forshaw" but as dusk threatens, things do not go to plan.

A Respectable Funeral

A clever and funny observation of three sisters whose old animosities emerge when they return to their mother's house after her funeral. Then, with a little help from the obligatory post-funeral tipple, family secrets start coming to light.
