Nick's mini-musicals Little Girl Lost, Dreaming Outside the Box and Cartography of a Relationship, plus a brand-new short work, comprised the line-up of this revue that featured four ten-minute musicals in the span of 50 minutes. A child goes missing in a crowded place. Two soulmates yearn for days gone by. A young couple's relationship is mapped, turn by turn, by a surprising source. And the premiere of a brand new short musical, Commencement, in which four young persons await their graduation ceremony.

"This classy little show has lovely warmth and tells four charming little stories. Four performers bring these stories to life, creating characters and relationships with believability ... Four in Fifty is a wonderful FringeWorld choice and a delight to experience." ~ StageWhispers
"Ambitious and unique ... The composition [of Dreaming Outside The Box] is charming and playful with an undercurrent of tragedy ... [Commencement is] fun, energetic and optimistic and takes full advantage of the remarkable harmonies the singers can achieve." ~ The Australian Times
