CATHERINE:

I don’t [think] - I was doing my

job, I don’t think it’d be... you

know.

NEVISON:

What?

CATHERINE:

Ethical. Appropriate. Not that I’m

not grateful! But... that isn’t

[why I’m here]

NEVISON:

I’d like to do something.

CATHERINE:

Sure. But that isn’t why I’m here.

(a moment. NEV can sense

something grave is

coming)

Ann came to see me. In hospital.

NEVISON:

Ann did?

CATHERINE:

Yeah.

NEVISON:

Ann did? I thought

CATHERINE:

She got in. Yes, I wasn’t...

(self-conscious)

seeing people. But she got in. And.

I didn’t mind, I was pleased to see

her. But. Then. She told me

something. Something that was

difficult. Something she wanted -

wants - you to know, but she

couldn’t face telling you herself.

So she asked me. To. So.

(a moment)

She was raped. One of them - Tommy

Lee Royce. He raped her.

(she lets that sink in)

When it goes to trial - and it

will, we will get him -

(she so wants to believe

that)

when it goes to trial, you’ll need

to know that. Because you don’t

want to be hearing it for the first

time in court. So. She doesn’t want

her mum to know. Because Helen

might never need to know.

CATHERINE (CONT'D)

(CATHERINE hopes NEV gets

the implication:
because

she may be dead be then)

Might she?

NEVISON:

(shakes his head, almost

no voice)

No.

CATHERINE:

But you do need to know. So. She

asked me to tell you that. Because

she couldn’t.

(NEVISON’s staring,

appalled)

She’s tough, she’s clever, she’s

dealing with it. But the hardest

part of it now - for her - was not

knowing how to tell you.

Part of NEVISON’s world just collapsed. (And CATHERINE would

love to tell him that she knows EXACTLY how he feels. But

it’s just not appropriate to start bringing up her own

troubles).
