Prism and Ken

Terry Johnson Price: $18.90

These two plays tell the inspiring, endearing and sometimes alarming stories of an Oscar-winning cinematographer and an aspiring playwright who receives a chance phone call

In Prism we see legendary cinematic master Jack Cardiff retire to the sleepy village in Buckinghamshire

His days of hard work - and play on some of the most famous sets in the world are now long behind him

As are his secret liaisons with some of the most famous women in the world

Surrounded by memorabilia from a lifetime of 'painting with light', the writing of an autobiography should be an easy matter

Were it not for the fact that Jack would now rather live in the past than remember it

Ken is set in 1978 and sees an aspiring young playwright wrestle with a play for the Royal Court

The phone rings

The man on the other end is called Ken

And he's about to teach our hero the pleasures and perils of serendipity
