Fragile Synopsis

‘One’ is a middle age man still trying to come to terms with his crippling insecurity,
the residue of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a trusted and idolized
teacher. An articulate and well-read man, he has gone through every form of
therapy to relieve himself of the daily anxiety but none of it has worked, because he
doesn’t trust anyone with his secret, even the people he love’s. All he is left with is a
reservoir of pain, a tape recorder, and an empty room.
Over three acts ‚One‘ spills his secret shame into the tape recorder. Everything; all
the things that he really wanted to tell his teacher, his father, his mother and
(ultimately) God. He’d like to tell them personally but his dad is dead, his teacher
has hanged himself, God has abandoned him and his mum is too fragile.
