The Price to Pay
- full length thriller - 3m 4f , single (split) set (scripts 6.00 each, performances 40 each)

Roger and Laura are just an ordinary married couple. Why then do a man and a woman, posing as police, kidnap Laura and keep her captive in a run-down farmhouse? After all, Roger has no money. The plot unfurls on a dramatically-split stage - half in the couple's flat and half in the farmhouse - as we share Roger's and Laura's private agonies and uncertainties. The police are called, but their motives do not always seem in Laura's best interests. It is left to Laura and Roger to effect the final solution, but there is a price to pay, and their lives will never be the same again. This play has good character parts, especially the schizophrenic kidnapper Dianne and her slow partner Barry.

"A tough, taut thriller. As tense as tomorrow's headlines" - T.O.A.D.S.
