Sunset by Martin Foreman

February 2019: SCDA One-Act Festival


Mike Bartlett's Bull

One of three office workers is about to lose their job. As Tony, Isobel and Thomas wait for their boss to deliver the verdict, the three discuss each other's chances of survival. For alpha male Tony and calculating Isobel, it's clear that Thomas is getting the chop. In the struggle for survival, no blow is too low.


A razor-sharp play about the fine line between office politics and playground bullying which exposes the vicious side of human nature and the power of words.


Bull is Arbery Productions' entry in the 2019 Edinburgh District Scottish Community Drama Association One-Act Festival. The performance will be during the week beginning 17th February - exact date to be confirmed.



August 2019: Edinburgh Fringe

Arbery Productions will put on three one-act shows, each running one week (6 days) in theSpace on Niddry Street - a popular Fringe location on the Royal Mile.

Sunset - a one-woman play - has not been performed since successful runs in two London theatres in 2013. Auditions will be held in early 2019; candidates (playing age 50 - 70) can find more information here.

Two more productions are under discussion. If these do not bear fruit, proposals will be sought from Edinburgh-based theatre creatives; details to be posted early 2019.

Two Venetians - one fictional, one historical; one comic, one serious; a famous lover and a famous trickster - were brought to life by Arbery Productions for three-week runs at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Award-winning writer Martin Foreman's four-star adaptation of Ben Jonson's Volpone, first seen at the Fringe in 2017 was revived as a two-act play, while his new one-act drama Casanova Dreaming looked at the life of Italy's most famous lover.
