It is the year 2014 and Phoebe (Poopay), a prostitute specialising as a ‘dominatrix’, is summoned to a sixth-floor suite in a five star Hotel by an infirm elderly businessman, Reece, who wants her to perform an unusual service: to witness a document detailing the murder of his two wives by his business associate Julian. When Julian walks in, Poopay disappears through the nearest door and finds herself in an identical suite - but the year is 1994. Not surprisingly, it’s occupant, Ruella, Reece’s second wife, is sceptical about Poopay’s explanation but when she too goes through the door and finds herself in the same suite in 1974 with Reece’s first wife Jessica, she decides to rewrite the future....

This ingenious comic thriller will take the audience by surprise by being a mixture of pastiche 'Physco' and time warp comedy that optimistically suggests that, if only we could foresee the future, we would most certainly change it.

Telstars, who featured recently on BBC 2, are an amateur group playing to professional standards.
