3:30 Deenies Exit – An excerpt of an original work, written by Louise Burley. A 95 year old woman named Deenie (Doreen) is sick of old age: the physical hardships, the loneliness, the boredom etc. She decides to quietly stop eating and end the ordeal. She has a close friend Max who visits her at her retirement home and they read literature together. Deenie persuades Max that she and he should write a play about an old lady who decides to do herself in. Max doesn’t know the fiction is fact.
4:30 The Valiant – Written by Holworthy Hall and Robert Middlemass. The Valiant tells the story of James Dyke, a confessed murderer who has been sentenced to die and now awaits his fate on death row at a prison in Wethersfield, Connecticut. The only problem is that no one knows who he really is or where he comes from, and he is determined to take his secret to the grave.
