Ever dreamt you were dreaming?
We each spend twenty-five years asleep yet no one really knows why we dream. Now, Luna has the answer. The trouble is she can't remember it, or doesn't want to. She didn't do it, she's sure of that. Or was that a dream?
From awar winning writer/director Mark Murphy, this unflinching, discomforting and ultimately consoling story is a slick and sinister thrilller from the darkest recesses of Luna's past. A history of traumatic dreams, broken hearts and a long buried but if uncovered, will change her life forever.

Critical Acclaim for The Night Shift
"The Night Shift Scratch made you want to run out of the theatre, grab a group of friends and go back and see it all over again. It was intense. Brilliantly performed. Spine-tingling. The Night Shift blasted a breath of fresh air through Studio 2." David Jubb, Artistic Director BAC
"This must rate as one of the best plays I have ever seen - shocking, scary, totally absorbing - with brilliant performances from Catherine Dyson and Craig Conway. A masterpiece." Audience member, Salisbury Playhouse, November 2006
"A fascinating piece of theatre ...and two marvellous performances from Catherine Dyson and Jason Thorpe" Scotland on Sunday
