'Whistling Psyche': A dark night, an old waiting room and two supposed strangers eager to reach their destinations. In the cold hours that rest between nightfall and daybreak, silent questions prompt unexpected revelations. Two souls share a passion for reform, but only one - Miss Nightingale - has been honoured. The other, Dr Barry, would never receive the same acclaim, but notoriety came after death and for a very different reason . . . 'Fred and Jane' explores the deep and sustaining friendship between two nuns, Anna and Beatrice, as they recall the trials and joys of religious life.
