First of a trilogy by Michael Duke.
Mairi has fallen in love with a man whom she has never met.
Her friends, however, are sceptical, and they might be right.
Another chance to hear Michael Duke's widely-praised trilogy of interlinked plays.
Mairi lives in a top floor flat, mostly happily, always alone.
Lately she listens to the man downstairs: Singing as he cooks lunch; arriving and leaving; showering.
She knows his CD collection; she hears him on the phone; she likes his laugh - but she's never actually seen him.
Her friends begin to worry that she's developing an obsession.
Mairi's losing it and she won't be saved.
When she finally meets the man, she's certain that there's something between them - they laugh together, he invites her to dinner, and Mairi returns to her friends triumphant.
She borrows clothes for the date, comes downstairs at the appointed time, and knocks on his door and it's now that Mairi's faith in the man existence begins to look like nothing more than pure folly.
