The story of Billie Holiday. It's around midnight in a small bar in south Philadelphia, March 1959, and Billie Holiday is making one of her last appearances. In intimate surroundings she begins her evening's cabaret and between her songs gradually pours out the stories of her life, the heartaches and the triumphs.
Benjamin Rubin is a cantankerous old writer, whiskey aficionado and pedant, still basking in the reflected glory of long-ago success. Martin Wegner is a rising young literary star, heralded as "the voice of his generation". When Martin is given the opportunity to develop his new play under the mentorship of his idol, the two writers meet, accompanied by Martin's brilliant wife Gina, and hosted by Erwin, the administrator of the prestigious arts fund that has thrown them together. In a dilapidated art nouveau villa, somewhere in the German countryside, two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.
Set in a fictitious English University town, strongly evoking Oxford or Cambridge, the play follows 24 hours in the lives of a group of young academics. The action unfolds in the rooms of Philip the university's cosseted and floundering professor of philology, for whom solace and certitude exist in complex wordplay. Out in the 'real world' the Prime Minister and his cabinet have been assassinated and England's most treasured writers are being murdered one by one! Back in the cosy bubble of university life, the bachelor don anguishes over sex, marriage, anagrams and the meaning of life. Did someone suggest academics were 'out of touch'?
1702. William III is on the throne and England is on the verge of war. Princess Anne is soon to become Queen and her advisors vie for influence over the future monarch.

Contending with deceit and blackmail, Anne must decide where her allegiances lie, and whether to sacrifice her closest relationships for the sake of the country.
Fog and creepily haunted houses, supernatural happenings, sea mists and dark stormy nights, lonely funerals and creaking attic doors, all combine in this gripping adaptation of Susan Hill's tense and thrilling story to create a play that taps our primal fears.
