Dominion – Now Available.
For Performance-rights information, see below.
Siobhan Locke has a problem… apart from having cancer, that is. She doesn’t want her husband, Eddie, to be alone when her time finally comes. So she goes looking for a new partner for him in the Lonely Hearts adverts in the local paper.
Eddie, too, has a problem. As much as he adores his wife, since she was diagnosed, he cannot find it in himself to get close to her – physically or emotionally.
Then, of course, there’s The Man. Siobhan’s constant companion. Is he just in her imagination, a drug-induced fantasy or something much more sinister? After all, only Siobhan can see him and he seems to have her best interests at heart.
When your love is all you have, how do you say goodbye?
When your love is all you have, how can you leave it behind?
Dominion traces the delicate, distressing and ultimately tender journey made by two people who thought their love was all they would ever need. In the end they discover that possibly, just possibly, they were right all along.
