About the Event

Four Men in the room, one of them must die. But why? Hate, love, jealousy or because one man from the 1800s said so. Join characters 1 to 4 as locked in a room they must figure out who will shoot who according to rules they don't understand. Watched as they decened into anger, hatred and frustration as one by one the secrets of their past are laid bare, as one by one they each gain a reason to spill blood.

Written by Jamie Rawson. Workshop reading by Jamie Rawson and guests.
