Red Dress Walking

  • The dress haunts my steps. Flashes of red on the street mesmerise me. I am alive to red cars, red shoes and the red of Suella's lipstick. It is silken laudanum that has thrown a distorting film over everything. The dress flutters through my dream life like a taunting red banner.

    This is the story of Will and Emily, who are very much in love with each other. Will - an engineer - is direct, logical, down to earth. Em, in contrast, is a reader, living in a world of her own which is alive with the characters that she reads and writes. One day, yearning to express the depth of his love for Emily, he gives her a gift: a ravishing red dress. Somehow, with this well-intentioned but entirely misguided gift, fault lines in their relationship open up and everything starts falling apart.
