Rick has helped out Jane when she couldn't pay in the supermarket. There is clearly sexual tension between them, as she gives Rick a lift home and comes in for a drink. They exchange information about themselves in a form of foreplay, but this begins to expose their true reasons for being there. Jane's husband is suspected of murdering his mistress. Rick has been sending threatening letters to Jane's husband to implicate him in the murder. Rick has a score to settle with Jane's husband from his past. He is an ex-con and was double crossed by Jane's husband. He intends to kill him and wants Jane to help. Further twists implicate both of them of orchestrating the situation as the play progresses.
