THE PREDICAMENT OF JACKSON SCOTT
2022

DIRECTOR / INTIMACY DIRECTOR

Written by Josh McGrillen

 

Produced by Black Hound Productions

Deadly secrets don’t stay hidden for long. 
 
Jackson has killed his boyfriend Ted and has no choice but to cover up his death. However, a vision of Ted still lives on in his mind, tormenting him about his new secret. His friends and his counsellor are concerned for Jackson's welfare, realising something’s not quite right with his recent behaviour, as Ted plays on Jackson’s mind. 

The Predicament of Jackson Scott is about queer relationships, grief, and secrets, showing how keeping them from others can have disastrous consequences.  

Genres/themes: Play, Dark Comedy, Thriller

"It's outrageously funny and unflaggingly intriguing"

His four-hander works Patrick Withey’s gritty and straightforward set well, with quirky transitions boosted by the use of popular music, including NF’s "The Search", and effective decisions by director Lex Kaby.
