Walking back home through Battersea Park at the beginning of 2019 there was eerie silence, then a slight breeze through the trees and I suddenly felt irrationally fearful. The germ of an idea began to form for a play.
I finished this play towards the end of 2019 before anyone had the slightest inkling that the world was going to be struck by a dreadful pandemic COVID 19. Unfortunately the play now seems slightly prescient.
The two male characters, one an artist, the other a writer, are loosely based on two tortured souls I knew well. They sparred with each other constantly, but they were also funny and life enhancing. I hope this play provides some ‘Food for thought’ but also a little humour.
