The play resolves with a genuine twist and provokes uncomfortable questions about the nature of truth, celebrity and the nature of happiness.

Cast

Johnny is in his early thirties, although his age is not really important. He has a slightly
unworldly manner, not unlike Andy Warhol; remote and a little withdrawn.

Kerrigan is about the same age, but in contrast is ebullient and self confident – his years in
the City have taught him that shrinking violets do not prosper.
