About Book

Today - after I had the electric sex, got clobbered, killed the dog and parked the hijacked ice-cream van - I found the pop legend's house in Greenwich.

Small-time hack and seeker of minor adventure, Rachel sets off down the Thames Path to Greenwich to interview Lulu for her tabloid's glossy supplement. But between London Bridge and the pop legend's mirrored hallway lies a series of unpredicted and comic events. Some Kind of Bliss is a play about how a walk on an everyday Wednesday can become an odyssey that turns your life upside down.

Some Kind of Bliss opened at the Trafalgar Studios, London, in November 2007.
