AuthorHAILS, Christopher - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author
SynopsisRachael Miller is awoken one Saturday morning from under the duvet of a double air-bed to the dulcet tones of the past British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, declaring war on Germany. She is in a virtually empty room. Why is she there and who is the man standing over her in a 1940s suit and trilby? Why is she still fully clothed? Why is there a sealed packet of condoms on the small bedside table? Why was the FTSE index at 750 points in 1986 and 5750 points in 2014? What was Rachel drinking the previous evening and what is a Psychic Medium Analyst? Does Callum Jenkins have all the answers? When she slowly gathers her thoughts, she realises the he knows more about her than she does. What has the disappearance of little Ann-Marie and the murder of Callum's wife in 2010? As she slowly recounts the events of the previous evening, the absurdity of her situation and surroundings become abundantly clear.
