The Rose and Crown
The occupants of a snug bar in a pub are bemoaning their lot, and the misery of shortages and rationing in 1947’s post-war Britain.
A stranger has entered, and listens to their conversation. The stranger tells the drinkers that he is the Angel of Death, and that he is one short of his daily quota.
The room is sealed off, and they can’t leave. The stranger is happy for them to choose who his next victim will be and – given their misery – he’s sure that they will have a volunteer.
The Rose and Crown is being performed as part of a double-bill with After Midnight – Before Dawn.
