Following on from his critically acclaimed Afternoon Play 'Whitechapel Dreams', veteran playwright Bernard Kops returns with a deeply personal and highly moving story in which he himself plays Leonard, visiting his old friend, Harry, for the final time. He's also the narrator of the piece, inside and outside the action; following the main events in the life and death of East End Harry, from his early, idyllic love affair with young Phoebe, sadly curtailed, through his success as an auctioneer and a crucial act of bitterness against Leonard to his dying day in a Mare Street hospice.
