What kind of woman hands round sweets at her husband's trial for multiple murders? Did Primrose Shipman deny to herself that her beloved Fred was capable of killing on a spectacular scale? In ‘Primrose’ Jennifer Pulling dissects the relationship of this odd couple As their life together is unraveled and the ties that bind revealed, one tantalising question remains unanswered: if she knows more than she admits, what monstrous kind of loyalty is it that protects a mass murderer? The playwright shows us that nothing, not even life and death, can be wholly defined, even monsters are vulnerable. Says Jennifer: ‘The motive for murder is always intriguing and never more so than in the case of the Doctor of Death. In the play I present what I believe lay behind this man’s mission to kill. But it is the psyche of the person who supports a partner’s dark deeds which really interests me.’
