Desire explores the link between sex and creativity through the story of a screenwriter struggling with a character who threatens to take over not just his creative and sexual life but his sanity.
Writer Ralph sits alone at the top of his London house, crippled by agoraphobia, emasculated by the success of his soap-star wife Phoebe, unable to complete the screenplay that will rescue his reputation.
With a deadline looming, he invites student au pair NÃ©nÃ© from Paris to look after his neglected children, just the missing character he needs. But is she carer, muse, lover or thief?
As Ralph succumbs to his desire, NÃ©nÃ© embarks on a passionate relationship with both husband and wife that leads all three into areas of emotional and creative trangression. Who is using whom? Who is writing the film called Desire? And where will it end?
A sexually charged psychodrama starring Oscar Pearce and Tella Kpomahou.
