Three Couples and a Goldfish
(Henna Night / Abortive / The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish)

by

Amy Rosenthal / Caryl Churchill / David Tristrum

SYNOPSIS

Henna Night:
Judith leaves her ex-boyfriend a desparate message on his answerphone, saying that she is not coping with their break-up and that she has bought some razor blades and henna. She adds that she hasn't decided whether to dye her hair or slash her wrists, and that she might be pregnant. However, it is his new parter, Ros, who hears the message and comes rushing to Judith's bed-sit.

Abortive:
Three weeks after her abortion, Rox - having been raped by Billy - and Colin find themselves in bed wondering how to carry on. Through the reproaches that are traded and the incidents that come up for discussion, the picture of a disturbing relationship emerges. Bed is no loger a safe island - to make love or to sleep.

The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish:
Henry and Alice have been married for 15 years. They are bored and have lost the zest for life and their relationship. Their lives have become a blur between fantasy and reality. Secret passions and desires explode and two seemingly separate fantasy worlds are on a collision course with reality. And it all started with a goldfish they named Orca.
