A story of undying love
Written & directed by Andy Payne
Henrietta has lived her life to the full, scared of nothing except perhaps of not being herself. After an unexplained hospitalisation, she finds herself facing an uncertain future and a loss of the dignity and control she so values. She has some support from her distracted daughter, and understanding from her son, an aspiring Member of Parliament who lives twelve thousand miles away in Melbourne, but it is her husband who is under pressure to keep the promise he made 30 years ago in a hotel bedroom and save Henrietta from her worst nightmare.
Pillow Talk is a tragic comedy about life, love and the promises we make. Set in a hospital, it references the Victorian Assisted Dying legislation and choices we make when faced with a terminal prognosis.
