Characters Sir Tom Seymour – A writer. Mid 60’s (potential to age up), grey hair in ponytail, grey moustache and glasses. Short tempered, superiority complex. Sir Anthony Randolph – A famous Hollywood actor. Early 60’s (potential to age up). Clean cut, London accent. Easy going, pleasant. Lou Green – 20's to 30's, London accent.
Synopsis A Saturday afternoon in December 2015, the converted stable building behind a large Victorian house in Primrose Hill, the den of Sir Tom Seymour. Seymour was a screenwriter and playwright. Once a household name, his star has waned in recent years. Sir Anthony Randolph is a hugely popular, perennial Hollywood actor. They bicker and pettifogger as only the dearest of friends may. These two old stagers have shaken hands on a £10 bet. What is that bet? How will it be decided? Join them as they try to settle the matter in this sometimes funny, sometimes unsettling, twisting thriller.
