PROJECT SYNOPSIS

John Smith is a killer with nothing in his life but murder and profit. Linus Pepper is an emotionally unstable young man who dreams of being a great writer. When Linus happens to find out what John does for a living he gets the bright idea to blackmail him. In Linus’s hands are photo’s of John committing first degree murder, his price is johns life story, to be adapted into a major bestseller. As the two men sit and discuss Books, Society, Life and Death, they learn more about themselves than they could ever imagine. Sadly, death is closer than they realize.

Additional Comments:

This is a very simple show starring two talented actors on stage for the entirety of the performance. The actor playing Linus may be asked to dye his hair.

DESCRIPTION

Born in Toxeth Liverpool, John Smith has spent most of his life killing for money and at this stage of his life it has really begun to take its toll. John is cynical, violent and crass and doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him. But beneath his pitiless demeanor is a man in torment. British accent preferred.

Linus Pepper

GENDER

Male

DESCRIPTION

Linus is an eccentric artist who just wants to be taken seriously. He recently dropped out of arts college and now wants to prove himself by writing the great american novel. Linus has a slight condition that has never been properly treated, as such he tends to act without thinking things through (Like blackmailing a hitman). He has a good heart though in spite of it all.
