The End of the Sentence archiveSasha, a young lawyer, is approached by bandit, Sergei Medvedev. Recently escaped from prison with a series of fresh raids behind him, Medvedev sets Sasha a task he must accept - constructing a legal defence in advance of Medvedevs possible recapture. The ensuing investigation brings Sasha face to face with victims across the city - from Georgian marketeers to Romany gypsies. All the time, questions surface. What role did Medvedev really play in these crimes? Who is the fellow countryman paying Sasha for his work? Uncertain of the truth and embroiled in a dangerous game, Sasha soon becomes aware of a new relationship forming - between his wife and his enigmatic client. Rich in the atmosphere of Russian folklore, The End of the Sentence is a psychological thriller inspired by real events. It is also a jigsaw puzzle that fits together in more than one way. Jeremy Freeson is a 30-year-old playwright from London. At the age of 17, his one-act drama Cactus People was a winner in the London Writers Competition and was subsequently optioned for TV adaptation by Punchinello Films. A former Moscow resident, his experiences there led him to write The End of the Sentence, through which his association with The Sticking Place began. Jeremy has also written a short film, Ten-Minute Task, directed by Adam Meggido, and another three plays, including Friend of a Friend, directed by Liv Evensen, and a new translation/adaptation of Maxim Gorkys The Lower Depths with Anna Popova. <a href="">Website</a>
