Fry's tour de force is a talking head which tells the story of a young man caught up in a cycle of male violence.
Bullied by his father and, later, by his adored brother and gay lover, he ends up on a murder charge.

The story is very successfully told - using wit and pathos - in a style of verse which could easily fit in the category of rap. Sometimes the rhyming is emphasised, at other times under-stated.
Using a space furnished with only a single chair, Fry manages to hold the audience for an hour with a powerful tale of innocence seemingly corrupted by a combination of experience and heredity.
