Siren

Synopsis:
This is a two hander that presents us with a prostitute and one of her clients He is middle-aged, Irish, married and obsessed with her. She is young and attractive. Is she the siren of the title or is it that the police car's wail we can hear outside? at this Camden pub theatre it is as likely to be real life as a sound effect. There is certainly good reason for calling the police: by the end of the first scene there is a body on the bed and another hanging dead in the next room. What brought things to this?
