by Tony Layton


     

Synopsis

Black Comedy Play Script: 'Bye-bye, Mr Heim' by Tony LaytonWalter Heim is the victim of car crash. As he lies helpless in intensive care his complicated, somewhat illegal, lifestyle is revealed. This pillar of the community has much to hide including bigamy and money-laundering.

There are those who would seek a horrible revenge. The crash was no accident, but a plot to end his life. Unable to speak, Walter is forced to listen to all those around him who seem to be hell-bent on his total destruction. However, every one has a price, and Walter finds that his money can talk him out of a deadly trap.

An impoverished nurse comes to his aid, but, as we know, money has a way of corrupting the nicest people … even those wonderful nurses.
