Performance Dates: Thursday 9th - Saturday 11th June

Meet Wendy, a humble bin collector living in any normal mid-terrace in any normal suburb of any normal town. She has eyes for her neighbour Brian. The street’s bins need emptying but Wendy finds more than she bargained for. Who actually is Brian? How does he account for his long absences? Will she win her man or will something else win her affections?

This piece of writing was the winner of our 2020 Scratch Night.


Wendy- 30s. Quirky bin collector who is looking for the one and fancies herself as the next Miss Marple. Wendy is the storyteller of the piece and must have a good rapport with the audience.

Edna- 70+ The sweet older lady but is not who she seems. A lady you want to trust but really should not.

Brian- 30s - 40s. Wendy's next-door neighbour and her love interest. He is immaculate and promotes an air of confidence until he speaks.

Cecil- 55+, A buffoon. Cecil is the devoted but very eccentric Gamekeeper of the Davenport Estate, Cecil appears harmless but is he?

Steve- 40+ A man/woman dressed as a dog. Cecil's loyal companion.
