The Serious Business Of Choosing A Mate is a richly comic double bill of unsuitable suitors, guns and strange proposals.

In Fairy Tale, a princess waiting for her perfect prince must overcome a shocking reality if she is to make her dreams come true.

In The Proposal, a nervous landowner finally decides to ask for his neighbour’s hand in marriage. But there are two obstacles: him and her.

Both comedies explore that age-old question: what is the person of your dreams never actually turns up?
