Playing the Games is a duo of plays focussing on the London 2012 Olympics, it includes: Taking Part by Adam Brace Lucky Henry, a Congolese security guard, has set his sights on representing his country at the 2012 Olympics. Only one problem; he's a terrible swimmer and his Russian coach wants to fly home on the first day of training. Everyone loves an underdog - think Eddie the Eagle or Eric the Eel. Follow Henry's journey from deep end straggler to Olympic hopeful as the two men try to fulfil their dreams at the London games. After The Party by Serge Cartwright Sean and Ray are best friends from Stratford. Once a promising DJ double act, now they're stuck in a rut: 30ish, unemployed but still clinging to a fantasy of making it in the music industry. With a baby on the way and the world about to arrive on their doorstep for London 2012, it could be the perfect opportunity for them to make something of their lives...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Funny and touching - Brace is a skillful writer * Evening Standard on Taking Part *
Consistently funny, emotionally on the button and probably deserves a further life even though it provides a neat snapshot of this mad, adrenalin-filled [Olympic] month. * Telegraph *
