Two seriously out-of-their-depth police officers uncover the strange truth of what happened when middle-aged and romantically disappointed hairdresser Marjorie Briggs finds something in a polythene bag on the beach that didn't belong there - something ancient and terrible with the power to seriously muck up the lives of Marjorie and all those she loves and hates.

    "The Cask of Amontillado" is Edgar Allan Poe's short but enigmatic masterpiece. Set in an unnamed Italian city, we hear the story of how Montresor lures Fortunato through the catacombs into the Montresor family vault and there chains him up and bricks him in for eternity. Why he does it we will never know, but he does so with a casual savagery that is truly chilling.

Without trotting out the already tired clichés about social networking sites being our main interaction or pointing out that with gaming systems becoming so sophisticated, the next generation will spend an overwhelming amount of time interacting through the Internet, it seems obvious to us that we are already heading for a "body-free" future.
