  • Overview
    David, a successful telecoms manager, is conducting an e-mail romance with a female French equivalent he'd bedded during a business trip. But their potential relationship is aborted when, by degrees, this unseen woman extracts from him the news that when he discovered that his manic-depressive wife Jess had taken an overdose, he saw it as a way of ridding himself of the £70,000 debt she'd run up on plastic, and of buying the Audi that he'd test-driven that day. Rather than help his spouse, he'd forced vodka down her throat to finish her off. The play then rewinds through various scenes, to the point where we see the wife as she was when she had just fallen in love with him, and was full of hope.
