The Arbiter

Unogumbe – Noye’s Fludde


Noye's Fludde (Noah's Flood), is a 1957 opera by Benjamin Britten. The text is based on an edition by Alfred W. Pollard of an early 15th-century mystery play from the Chester Mystery Cycle.

Rolli and the Golden Key


The sequel to Quest for a Heart the fantasy musical "Rolli and the Golden Key" is a story about the power of friendship and the fact that friendship is not an attributed to age.

Lilet Never Happened


The drama script is based on the real life story of a child prostitute in Manila who, having reached the end of her possibilities, attempts suicide as a desperate way out of her terrible life.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre

RWWM is a splatter movie of the goriest kind. The story is true to its genre, and the humour as black as it gets. Men turn into beasts and kindness is a weakness that can only lead to defeat.
