Television producer Jill Rillington is taping a documentary which will reunite Vic Parks with Douglas Beechey

Seventeen years ago, Douglas inadvertently foiled Vic's last bank robbery, during which Vic shot a teller in the face

Vic, a callous boor, served his time and then exploited his celebrity status to become a wealthy television personality

Douglas married the maimed teller, and hero and victim fell into shabby obscurity

Now, at Vic's luxurious Mediterranean villa, Jill's hopes for a fiery confrontation are fading because amiable Douglas shows no envy or bitterness and happy people make rotten telly material

Will Vic ever receive his just deserts?


"A masterpiece [by] Ayckbourn at the peak of his powers using comedy to say harsh, true things about our society" ~ Guardian

"Marvelous, moving and memorable" ~ Time Out

"Ayckbourn is without doubt the living miracle of our modern theatre" ~ Daily Mail
