'When does libertarian become Nitroglycerine? When does protest become Semtex? At what point does the conviction you are right...become Gelgnite?'
Charles Jennings QC arrives at a respected national hospital for a heart transplant. He is awoken into a sinister political nightmare in which he must battle the establishment to prove his innocence for a crime embedded within him. Beset by the spiralling logic of his condition, Mr Jennings struggles to save his name, his principles and ultimately - his life.
An uproarious comedy about civil liberty in the face of paranoia, Proving Mr Jennings was awarded the King's Cross New Writing Award in 2004.
