He finds distraction in a young boy, convincing himself that his interest is purely artistic.


But as the city yields to a sinister disease, his growing obsession threatens to submerge him.


This unflinching, solo adaptation of Nobel Prize-winning author Thomas Mann's novella reunites actor Greg Hicks with director Philip Prowse.
