Two hard-hitting plays linked by the theme of retribution, exploring the media's fascination with serial killers, and the fall-out from infidelity in marriage

Talk about the Passion: A young child is horrifically murdered; the autobiography of the serial killer is a hit publication. Jason Carroway is forced to endure the guilt at failing to protect his son and the subsequent media attention that accompanies the controversial release of the killer's autobiography. The play is a moving and powerful exploration of loss, society's collusion in the glamorisation of evil, and the desire for justice.

Rattlesnakes examines the seedy world of the gigolo providing sex to bored and lonely wives. A vigilante group of betrayed husbands seek retribution in this hard-hitting study of betrayal and personal failure.

Talk about the Passion has been produced in the US, Australia and New Zealand and has been adapted by the author for the screen.

Published to tie in with productions at the New End Theatre, Hampstead and Arc, Stockton in September 2004.
