'Feed' - January 2005

To nurse Stephanie, the old man she is assigned to care for in the Havencrest Nursing Home for the elderly, is plain old Harry Burgess brought there by his daughter, Edith.

The tetchy old man insists he is not the humble Harold of his childhood, but in reality he is Harry Troop a retired music hall entertainer struggling to regain his favoured identity. His flashes of comic talent intrigue Stephanie and she helps him revive and relive his memories.

Through flashbacks of singing, dancing and laughter we learn of Harry's modest success much helped by his talented but tragic partners.

With Stephanie's help, Harry is finally able to lay old ghosts to rest, take up his cane and entertain an audience once more.
