Cucumber

Life for 46-year-old Henry (Vincent Franklin) and his boyfriend Lance is comfortable and settled. But after the most disastrous date night in history--involving a threesome, two police cars, and Boney M--Henry's old life shatters, and his new life begins. While Lance gets to know the mysterious Daniel, Henry soon finds himself with unexpected companions. 24-year-old Freddie and 19-year-old Dean have only been passing strangers, until now. But when they all find themselves under the same roof, they need to work out; are they friends or enemies? Can men from such different generations ever get on? Henry's sister Cleo can only stand and watch as Henry's life spins off in wild new directions, helped by his nephew Adam. But Cleo's hiding secrets of her own. And with his dangerous old friend Cliff prowling around, Henry has to think fast, and forge a whole new life, while facing truths about himself which challenge his entire identity.

Banana

Banana offers an intriguing and often outrageous peek into the individual lives, loves and losses of a range of characters who are only glimpsed in Cucumber, now given space to expand into their own one-off stories. Young lesbian Scotty pursues an unrequited love; 19-year-old Dean has mysterious family secrets and a sexually charged liaison with the enigmatic Geordie Man; Sian struggles to choose between lover Violet and her over-protective mum Vanessa; Helen is besieged by unwanted attention from an ex; and law student Josh goes home to find his childhood friend and the life he left behind. The stories are charming, witty and at times, heartbreaking, as they follow the lives of a wide variety of characters, be they gay, lesbian, transgender or anything in between.
