The Ching Room A pitch-black two-hander set in a toilet cubicle. Rory realises he is out of his depth once he becomes trapped by the terrifying and enigmatic drug-dealer, Darren. Cast size: 2M. "Has subtle depth as a meditation on drug culture... The character of Darren is a demon for our times." The Scotsman "Exudes the same sort of self-assurance as Gregory Burke's debut,
Gagarin Way... You can see real talent at work here." Metro "As tight as a short drama set in a toilet cubicle should be...A curiously compelling little play... A script riddled with priceless back-alley gems." The Herald "It's exciting, totally absorbing theatre." City Life, Manchester Turbo Folk A sharp look at Scottish nationality at home and abroad. Set in the sort of bar you wouldn't take tourists to, in an unspecified Balkan country, Turbo Folk earned Bissett a nomination for Best New Play at the 2010 Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS). Cast size: 3M. "Tells its story with pace and economy and delivers a real and frightening dramatic punch... The games Bissett plays with language are dazzling." The Scotsman
