Big Brother meets Kill Bill meets Jack (of Beanstalk fame) … Mix these together to create Kill Jill. A clever script exploring the hot topical issues of homeowners defending themselves.
Posing the question ?How far can Reality TV be allowed to go?? here is the scenario – Jack has been repeatedly robbing George at the top of the beanstalk. His final visit is different in two ways. Firstly, with Jack is his girlfriend, Jill, (of course!) who is co-incidentally the latest star/victim on Reality Lottery, a fictional TV transmission where people are forced (after being selected by a Lottery) to participate in the reality show, a futuristic form of National Service stroke entertainment. With Jill of course, is the reality TV crew who film her every move. Secondly, George, in his utter frustration, has chosen this day to lay in wait for the young thieves armed with a shotgun. The ending is suitably Tarantinoesque.
Kill Jill raises issues of rights and responsibilities (for Jack, the Giant, Jill and the TV crew filming the unfolding drama) and is full of imaginative drama and media techniques.
An entertaining and sharply written script from the author of Too Much Punch For Judy, one of the top selling plays in the UK.
A great festival play, this is also a very suitable senior drama student examination piece.
There are extracts from this play on the excellent DVD ?Wheeller Plays Exemplified?, as directed by professional director Tim Ford.
