The Pearl Series

The Pearl Series chronicles the lives of four individuals who find themselves at an impasse. With words as weapons they orchestrate their escape, rationalising, scheming and lying they unpick the truth to find a brief freedom. The situations they find themselves in range from the impossible to the absurd. The choices they make are deliberate and often flawed. If nothing else their stories are true.

  1. The Pearl Series - Episode 4 - Testimony

    They say forgiving is the easy part, forgetting is the bitch. Sam is finding it hard to forget and relishing being a bitch. It’s not about the money, it’s about truth, in affirmation of family cohesion. Sam believes in family, but she is also a realist, she believes in science. In facts and logical deductions. She believes in DNA and unfortunately for her family she has discovered a discrepancy. The time is right to break the news, all she needs now is a stage.

  2. Pearl Series Episode 3 - Serenade

    He was born disconnected, he would mirror the emotional behaviour of others to fit in. From an early age he had a fascination for fire, for burning, for the moment when a flame becomes smoke. As he got older this smouldering desire became life and he ordained himself as a scholar of decay. A killer. A professional. A game player. Now an explanation has been demanded from him and for the first time in a long time this isolated figure, this snake in the grass is in the mood for talking.

  3. The Pearl Series Episode 2 - Statement

    He wants the two point four family, a four by four, a sit on mower, neighbourhood watch and satellite TV. He rants to anyone who’ll listen about how the nuclear family has become toxic, how radio stations run commercials for divorce lawyers like it’s a lifestyle choice. Yet sitting where he is sitting it is difficult to believe a single thing that comes out of his mouth; even less the direction of his moral compass. Dirty boy!

  4. The Pearl Series Episode 1 - Tribunal

    Her career was her vocation. It would have to be, on the money she got paid. Her mentors were her friends; her teachers, counsellors, people she looked up to. When one of those nearest to her was nearly killed on the job, although blameless, she was blamed.
