He travels to Paris to walk the banks of the Seine, eating lots of cheese and drinking a fantastic bottle of wine as he goes – a lifelong dream. But along the way he meets a busker, a fisherman and a suicide jumper who all have something to teach him.

White Flame Dancing by Alberto Rigettini, a melodrama.
A young woman fights for her right to be happy and live a conventional life . Her boyfriend and her flatmate will try to stop her…

And in between the longer plays, expect “Commercial Breaks“: short and innovative one-minute plays.
