There’s high drama and some low comedy in these two one-act plays by Anne M. Holmes.


Set in a council flat in south London in 1992, the play reunites recently appointed Tory cabinet minister Sir Ambrose Carrick with war correspondent Maggie McArthur, a woman he first met a world away and a lifetime ago. Both have secrets they will protect at any cost. This is a battle of wills. Who will still be standing at the end?


Charlotte and Emily used to love working at Chatsworth & Son, a publishing house once known for the quality of its authors. But times are changing. Now senior editors, Charlotte is stuck with the tortured prose of thriller writer Greville Marshall and Emily must cope with the fragrant euphemisms of romance writer Millicent Carruthers. The two editors are hiding from their bestsellers, trying to figure out how they can wash their hands of these hacks.

The two plays are available in both print and electronic versions. To purchase, click here.
