PETER BRIFFA Playwright

Country

Life

Barbara brings back Jim to her country cottage after the funeral of Jim’s latest girlfriend. Neither has seen each other for over sixty years. As they reminisce about the good old days, nosy neighbour and former policeman Kenneth comes barging in, making accusations of thieving and skulduggery. Is Jim a conman, or just an innocent old boy trying to make Barbara happy?

 

Soon, they are all up to their neck in blackmail and robbery. And maybe even murder.

 

Jim, 74

 

Barbara, 79

 

Kenneth, 85
