Storyline

The Johnna Man is a story of love, loss, grief, friendship and unnecessary cruelty to goldfish, as told by Chris Riseborough - a late twenty-something comedy writer who spends his days adrift in a sea of self involvement and whiskey. On the day that Chris' estranged wife, Tilly, informs him of her intention to file for a divorce, Chris doesn't think that the day could get any worse. That is until he learns that his closest childhood friend, John Naylor (AKA The Johnna Man) has become very estranged indeed. Terminally So. When Chris returns to his hometown of Brighton in order to pay his last respects he is once again brought face to face with the friends that he left behind. Amongst them are Pete and Ian, a drink & drug orientated Laurel & Hardy, Nessa, a dizzy but loveable psuedo hippy, Steph, the late Johnna's oft-overlooked girlfriend, and Ryan, a misanthropic, New York dwelling architect who "makes Edmund Blackadder look like Mary Poppins". Also present in this group of old ... Written by Adrian Foiadelli

It's great! but i'm biased cos i should have been Tilly! so you should find out for yourselves! Adrian Foiadelli is a clever writer and deserves great things. The story is funny without being tired, sad without being sentimental, dark without being sensationalist, real without being simplified. Scenes that will make you wince but you're still peeping through your fingers to see what happens next.

For a first time screenwriter i think he's done a blinding job! Hints of tragedy seen in real time-it's only a tragedy in your own mind- the world keeps ticking.... real people, real situations, surreal circumstances; it's life jim, as a lot of us know it!
