By Anthony Burgess
Adapted and Directed by Lucia Cox
With Eve Burley, Oliver Devoti, and Adam Urey
Howard and Janet Shirley live an average, humdrum life in an average Northern town in England. But Howard has an anything-but-average talent: a photographic memory that he uses to win a TV quiz show.
With his winnings, he and Janet travel the world in style, seeing everything they can. But upon their return, a disillusioned Howard makes a sinister proposition to Janet.
Adapted from Anthony Burgess' (author of A Clockwork Orange) 1961 novel, this darkly comic story is a hilarious and provocative condemnation of culture and the modern world.
