Derek is a skilled photographer, very down on his luck. A mysterious envelope drops through the letter box – a stranger asking him to take pictures of an elegant young woman as she walks through leafy Holland Park. The catch is she must not know she is being photographed... The reward is handsome.
Derek accepts – how could he refuse? But the assignment leads him to seedy Soho of the 1950’s. Who is the girl? Why does she take a different route each day? What do an Irish comedian, a Russian conjuror and an American saxophone player have to do with a sudden bloody incident? In solving the mystery, Derek finds his whole outlook on life is changed.
Douglas Post’s wonderfully intelligent thrillers do more than keep you on the edge of your seat – they examine the turbulent human heart.
Well known to Watermill audiences, Simon Slater performs this one man play, moving effortlessly from ukulele to saxophone and even the odd conjuring trick!
