“Do you think I’m being paranoid? It’s just that of late, I’ve been finding myself thinking that every noise, every vehicle that passes, every person that walks by could be about to do something. And I don’t want to be like that.”

Alex has his flat. His home. He’s building a life with Clare. Nothing can derail his happiness, not even their Tom Cruise obsessed neighbour, who is always coming round. He just wishes those kids would stop hanging round outside his house. But they’re just kids, with nothing to do, they’re not dangerous, right?

Lighting by Sally Ferguson. Sound by Jo Walker. Cast: Christopher Brandon. John Lightbody. Philip McGinley. Jenny Rainsford.
