Sex contract pair take tale to the stage
MOST people keep love letters or photos as a reminder of the sweet nothings they shared.
But one couple have a slightly different memento – a contract agreeing that she will be his mistress in exchange for him paying for her home and income.
And now the unusual contract, along with recordings she made of their conversations spanning their 30-year affair, is being brought to the West End.
The real-life anonymous couple – she is 88 and he is 93 – live in separate houses in the same city on America’s west coast.
In exchange for ‘mistress services’, including ‘All sexual acts as requested, with suspension of historical, emotional, psychological disclaimers,’ he has provided her with a comfortable life.
The unconventional pair first met at university but drifted apart, before meeting again 20 years later.
Their relationship has now formed the plot of a play written by Abi Morgan, the British screenwriter
The pair penned a book called The Mistress Contract, only signing themselves as ‘She’ and ‘He’.
