Their lives intertwine once more when Walter arrives at James’s house to kill him. With the threat of death looming, the two men begin to discuss the events that led them down their respective paths. Can James beat the odds and escape with his life? Or will Walter prove once and for all that the house always wins? The play has been written by Billy White, one of our Lower 6th Form pupils.
