A Necessary Evil


Jack and Dave have lived together for twenty years as domestic partners. Jack’s father dies suddenly without ever having told Jack he was ill. Jack’s mother Doreen is suddenly homeless as a result of poor financial planning on the part of her and her husband. Jack and Dave take her in and, in spite of tensions, there seems to be the possibility of happy coexistence. But secrets about the past and present are revealed and the tensions soon become unendurable.
