Who is this man, Peter Meredith? Why is he a fugitive on the run? Why is his wife so horrified by his intentions and is their unborn child safe from harm. Set in the exotic lavender fields of Provence, life should be an idyllic existence for the Merediths. Making a living from farming and selling his paintings of poppies in the market square, the existence could not be sweeter in a setting which will be ideal for bringing up their child. Then comes a bitter blow, not, as it happens, the onset of war, but when Suzy Meredith realises that her husband is not the man she thinks he is. This man is being hunted by Scotland Yard and tortured by his past? The secrets of this unique thriller will be revealed on the above dates, when a ruthless killer on the run is finally brought to justice in a terrifying denouement.” Notes: a) The performances will contain reports relating replica hand guns which will be ‘on’ stage. b) One of the characters in the play is suffering from a mental illness of an undisclosed nature.
