Storyline

Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people. Up until now Monique has always been able to give her clients exactly what they've wanted. Thomas has always been exactly what everyone else has expected. But tonight Thomas' curiosity is going to get the better of him while demanding of Monique the one thing she's reluctant to offer. Throughout the course of the evening the tension, emotional and sexual, builds as the two characters miss each other on the surface, whilst underneath it all, they connect in a way neither had expected or hoped for. In a society where true honesty is a rare commodity, Monique and Thomas take the audience on a funny, poignant and brutal journey of self-examination. Written by Scramble Productions

a complete load of crap
30 April 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

The other reviewers of this piece of junk must have been part of the cast and crew....no male that age is that unfamiliar with the female anatomy unless he's become celibate to join an order and then he would still know more than the rope-a-dope playing the part...on the other hand, the female is hardly a personable sex bomb ...if she was that cold and indifferent to clients she wouldn't last 10 minutes as a high end call girl, escort or whatever tag you want to put on a prostitute...i gave a star for stupidity
