Dramatised for the radio by Mike Walker from a short story by Ruth Rendell, this is a dark tale of passion, simmering jealousy and revenge in the 1970's suburbs.
Synopsis: It is 1979, Britain in recession. For Arthur, a middle age accountant in a small company, life is predictable. Happily married and settled. When a new client, the charming and successful writer Reeve Baker steps into their lives, offering a tantalising glimpse of another exciting colourful world.
I decided to concentrate on the writer as the dominant character for the image, depicting him as a mysterious enigmatic presence, glowing with bright hues and patterns of the time, contrasting with the quiet monochrome world of the accountant. The render time was approximately one and half working days prior to going to print.
