FormatFull-length.
SynopsisFELIX, an old man of eighty, is approaching death. Brought up by Jesuits and educated as a strict catholic, his conscience begins to prick him and he now worries about his many sexual misdemeanours. He has loved, seduced and has been seduced by many women in his life. But where exactly does the fault lie? Is he strictly to blame, and how much of a part have women played in his seduction? DEATH appears – ready and quite convinced that FELIX is totally at fault and is prepared to take him. Ailing FELIX is also determined he should be judged and have a fair trial. But with none forthcoming, FELIX wins DEATH over and DEATH is ordered by his hierarchy to listen and observe FELIX’S love affairs and seductions which FELIX hopes are all brought about by women. But the choosing is not left up to him. The solution – a compromise?

Pierre Syndica-Drummond
My name is Pierre, and was born in France, my father an Italian, born in Scotland, mother Greek. I was educated in England. I am an ex stage designer, New York fashion and food photographer, film maker, world traveller and now at seventy seven a writer for radio, stage and screen.

Having lived and worked in seven different countries I have known many people from many walks of life. And it is people I like to write about.

I also have my likes, dislikes, prejudices and most of all, I reject political correctness for it denies freedom of speech and no doubt, in the future, government’s will even find a way of controlling thought. After all the media have certainly made a good start.

Today we live in a world where extended families have been and are still being destroyed, one parent families are slowly becoming the norm, the very basic necessities of life such as heat, light and water are taxed for profit. Furthermore sex, sexual innuendo and lavatory humour are now permitted and presented as entertainment in literature, magazines and newspapers, radio, stage and screen.

And third, to my necessary need for food and money to survive, sex is mainly the subject in which I base all my scripts. I believe it is said that people born under the sign of Scorpio are highly oversexed and it is always advised that a writer should write what he knows, learned, has experienced and seen.

Therefore all my plays are based on people I’ve worked with, studied with, partied with, lived with and believe me I’ve met some real odd balls.

Therefore to entertain, there is always the need to dramatise which I sincerely hope you may find interesting and most of all theatrically worthy.
