The award winning Organised Chaos Productions presents Boy On A Bed

Adam likes running. He sprints through snow, heat, gales and rain. One day when he gets soaked by a passing bus Stella offers him a towel.

Stella likes beauty. She is training to be an architect. Instantly attracted to each other they make plans to move in together.

Benedict likes sitting around and smoking. He is a painter hoping for a lucky break. As Adam runs by Benedict sketches him.

When he persuades Adam to sit for a painting, the result is a picture that leaves its mark on all of them for the rest of their lives.

This is a script chosen from our 2013 script call
