Suburban Tales: The Forgotten

Ever wondered what your pets really think about you? Or what the birds actually say to one another? Suburban Tales looks at life from the perspective of the birds and animals that inhabit our towns and cities.

Pets just want to be loved. Pure and simple. But what happens when their owners stop loving them?

Was it something they did?

Jude Neanor: Simple Things

Simple Things was written to be the theme to a romantic film. I tried to experiment more with this piece, pushing myself to use more complex harmonies and voicing, as well as to write for a solo instrument (in this case the flute and later the clarinet) and accompaniment. Simple Things uses a simple melody (hence the name) and is designed to reflect the peaceful and loving nature of a simple relationship.



FUTURE VOICES concludes with two more original plays from aspiring playwrights.


LOOPER by Victor Fernandez (Platanos College) – “There is no end, there is no beginning.” A girl lies dying in hospital…

PART ONE: A man holds a theatre hostage – and makes a strange demand.

PART TWO: Can the same thing be happening again?
