Not Surgery Hours

LOGLINE Dr Goldsworth is on an idyllic marathon training run when she's derailed by anxious patient Geoff, who's desperate for medical advice for his intimate problem and won't take no for an answer. SYNOPSIS Dr Goldsworth has ringfenced a rare free day to tick off a vital marathon training run. When she’s recognised by her patient Geoff, he leaps to jog along uninvited hoping to secure some valuable medical insight. Ever the consummate professional, Dr Goldworth finds herself all ears to Geoff’s concerns but stands firm, he needs to book an appointment. It might not be surgery hours, but in these times of lengthy NHS waiting times, Geoff does what any sane person in his situation would do; he seizes the moment to discuss some worrying symptoms and initiate an eye-wateringly intimate out of hours consultation. A contemporary comedy short, ‘Not Surgery Hours’, explores how far some patients are willing to go to speak to their GP. Is the NHS on its knees? Yes. Do we admire everything about it? Yes. Do doctor’s occasionally have to perform impromptu rectal examinations in public parkland? Apparently so. WINNER - Audience Award and Best Regional Film, BIFA-Qualifying Cornwall Film Festival 2023

RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME…WRONG NUMBER A wrong number phonecall from a suicidal Irishman on a remote train platform leads to a trainee vicar saving his life…by mistake. 1 phone call, 2 locations, shot simultaneously in 1 take. The phone call is presented to the audience in split screen so they can choose their own journey. When Cillian arrives at the platform just before sunrise, aiming for a permanent departure from life in Limerick, he can’t figure out why there are no trains. Not to be beaten, he calls the information line for help and gets far more than he bargained for, when the person that answers is a hopelessly inadequate priest, utterly oblivious to Cillian’s psychodrama. This project started as a 2 hander play. It was picked up, adapted and turned into a short film in 6 months. From the strength of this short film it is currently being developed into a 6 part TV show.
