The Room

Author:

Jonas Karlsson/Neil Smith

Synopsis:

The Authority looks favourably upon meticulousness, efficiency and ambition. Bjorn has all of this in spades, but it's only in the room that he can really shine. And it's only in the room that he finds harmony, an escape from the triviality of the workplace. Unfortunately, his colleagues see things differently. In fact, they don't appear to see the room at all - eventually leaving Bjorn convinced that they are conducting some sort of psychological warfare against him. But who is right? Is the room a figment of an overactive imagination, the spectre of a mental illness? Or is there something more mysterious going on?

Things We Have In Common

Author:

Tasha Kavanagh

Synopsis:

The first time I saw you, you were standing at the edge of the playing field. You were looking down at your little brown straggly dog - but then you looked up, your mouth going slack as your eyes clocked her. Alice Taylor. I was no different. I used to catch myself gazing at the back of her head in class, at her silky fair hair swaying beneath her shoulder blades. If you'd glanced just once across the field, you'd have seen me standing in the middle on my own, looking straight at you. But you didn't. You only had eyes for Alice...
