Under The Bright Sun by Norm Foster looks at four people who meet at a bus stop and question their existence.
"Each has some form of amnesia and they question their lives and love," director Jay Shaw said.
"I've been away from the stage for a while and have put a toe back in the water with stage management but decided it was time to see if all my training can come to the spotlight with this show my directorial debut."
Bob Charteris is writer and director of That's What Friends Are For, a mature-age romantic comedy that looks at a terminally-ill woman's suggestions for those dearest to her.
Always thinking of others, Helen suggests her husband Tom and best friend Irene could better enjoy life if they get together.
In That's What Friends Are For, the terminally-ill Helen (Judy Davies-Moore, right) suggests her best friend Irene (Di Ryman) should get together with her husband.
"I like to write about issues that affect single people in their 60s, including sex," Charteris said.
"Of course, in this play one on them is still married, which enabled me to put a few unexpected twists in the plot.
"Because the play is, in essence, a series of conversations, the challenge was to construct it in a way that holds the audience's attention while, at the same time, allowing them to build up the story in their minds."
