By Giles Ecott & Roger Cayless
Three men on a mission. Get in their way and
they will inconvenience you. Faced with the anti-social
behaviour that blights suburbia and surfaces repeatedly
in the news, three middleclass, middle management,
middle-of-the-road men take action.
For every anti-social crime they see, they extract
a revenge that matches the original crime. Graffiti
their train station, they will graffiti your house.
Non-violent and non-confrontational, their night-time
adventures seem harmless – justice for the
people by the people.
Unfortunately it isn’t that simple, because
each man is lying about something. One is a coward
desperate to belong. One is entirely selfish and
immoral and just wants to get his own way. The
third won’t admit to the horror of his home
When their three conflicting motivations come
to the fore, will they turn on each other or stand
united? Is anyone who they really seem? As their
campaign of revenge escalates and becomes personal,
each man seems to go on a journey. One brings
to life pop culture’s ability to applaud
stupidity, one proves that immorality can be charming,
and one surprises us all with his ability to deceive.
In the end, the audience must decide who is the
real hero and if there is in fact a villain.
GILES ECOTT & ROGER CAYLESS
Giles & Roger have worked together for the
last seven years as a Creative Team in a large
multi-national advertising agency where, until
recently, they were the Creative Directors.
During this time they handled multiple accounts,
winning numerous awards for the agency. Projects
covered everything from traditional campaigns
through to multimedia and film.
They have also collaborated on a number of extra-curricular
projects including a children’s television
series, a film script and a website featuring
bad caricatures from their daily commute (facesfromthetrain.com).
Prior to his career in advertising, Giles worked
first in the art department of a variety of film
production companies before becoming a scriptwriter.
This was in South Africa, where the two series
that he co-wrote won several awards. Roger has
a long history in a variety of advertising agencies
where he has worked in both pure design and art
direction. Together they have become a single
creative entity, so much so that they write their
career histories in the third person.
