Gary Love has the dubious pleasure of sitting in the Directors Notes’ hot seat this week, a long time actor turned TV director, Gary’s feature debut Sugarhouse is an adaptation of Dominic Leyton’s critically-acclaimed stage play Collision and recently had its UK premiere in London’s Leicester Square.
Tom is a middle-class city boy whose life has reached breaking point. D is a young crack-head: smart, witty, desperate. Tom is completely out of his depth when he finds himself in D’s abandoned warehouse attempting to do a “deal” with the energetic, volatile drug addict. The two enter into an irrational, deadly game of cat and mouse. The tense drama escalates when psychotic local crime-lord Hoodwink wakes up to find his snub nose gun missing.
