The End of Gray's Malaise

The End of Gray’s Malaise. He who knows the confines of his own prison is truly free.

It’s been ten million, two hundred and forty eight thousand, four hundred and eighty seven minutes and nineteen seconds since Webster Gray left the walls of his rented flat. However this morning something different is happening. Though Webster Gray remains not only perfectly content but adamantly resolute he will never again venture into the outside world, his own body has other ideas and makes a powerful break for freedom.

The End of Gray’s Malaise

A darkly comic tale of fear, dysfunction and redemption.

Written and Performed by Paul Trussell:
