Michaelmas Week 5
"You're a public school boy, Harry. You live on secrets" Winner of the RSC's Other Prize in Cambridge, Camera Obscura is new writing at its finest. Harry insults his fiancee's autistic sister at a party and is terrified it's been caught on film. He knows someone must have seen it - after all, he's the one responsible for London being overrun with CCTV cameras, a London where there's no space for secrets. But you can always rely on a friend to help you out, right? And Anthony pays good money for tapes that should never have been made of things that should never have taken place. Harry's easy moral convictions are put under pressure in the course of an drug-fuelled evening, exposing old school rivalries, sexual competition and horribly misjudged loyalties. CAMERA OBSCURA examines the flipside of a good education, where the Old Boys are tied together by secrets so nasty that they must never come out.
