Can Malone Die?
By David Pollard
Max Feeney is a best-selling author on the point of killing off his character the ‘Ethical Assassin’ when the fictional character appears to argue to be spared. In the ensuing debate, hidden and unacknowledged truths are surfaced and the question of the debt owed by creator to creature is examined. Ultimately, Max succumbs to a heart attack while grappling with his creation. Has this all been the result of Feeney’s descent into madness or is illusion more real than we think?
Part of the 'Illusion/Delusion' trio of plays by Ben Pollard
