Down An Alley Filled With Cats
Written by Warwick Moss
Directed by Michael Bate and Daley Chaston
30 March – 4 April 1998

Timmothy Timmony is the elderly, cultured proprietor of a book shop in a Sydney area that is being redeveloped. The bookstore is in the last building still standing. Simon Matthews, an uncultured but not insensitive adventurer, comes to the shop in pursuit of a particular volume at closing time. Just as Simon discovers that the book has been sold to his arch enemy, the landlord locks he and Timmony in the building for the night. It soon becomes obvious that the book contains a code which identifies the whereabouts of an invaluable artifact. Through the night the two combatants manoeuvre for position. The revelation that the artifact is in the shop all along creates a climax that allows the two men to discover themselves through each other.
