Rattle of a Simple Man

Timid football fan Percy is down from Manchester with the lads and after the match is picked up by lovely young prostitute Cyrenne. The lads bet he won't spend the night with her but, uncharacteristically he accepts the bet and goes to her basemen flat. He is shy, gullible and believes all her lies about her exclusive education, her rich family and her exciting life. He would rather talk then 'do' anything and gradually they open up to one another - she learns about his loneliness, his longing for love, his dull job and hobbies. Eventually he discovers she's from an ordinary background, abused by her stepfather, and is struggling for some pride and independence. The secrets of their hearts somehow balance out and, at the end of the play, it looks as if Percy might have the courage to..or will he?
