His & Hers
Written by Jolyon Coy and Vaughan Sivell
Status: In Development
Peter and Cellandine Roke are both haunted and hiding from the world – seemingly trying to cope with the loss of their young children – they have cut themselves off from their families and their domestic staff and are living in seclusion in a two-room suite on the upper floors of their Mayfair townhouse.
Their days and nights are meaningless and confused. A private lift goes straight to the garage basement but nowhere else, facilitating discrete runs to score Class A drugs. In the garage are his and hers Ferrari’s, covered in thick layers of dust. Their servants leave food and supplies on the landing, taking the stairs that lead to the rest of the house.
As their addiction takes hold we learn how this fantastically rich and charming couple became consumed by their demons. And as we learn the devastating truth behind the ghosts of their children, an even darker revelation awaits in this sordid tale of love, privilege and possession.
His & Hers is a story about losing your mind, and the curse of wealth when you are totally unable to control yourself.
