Against the background of rising hysteria in Middlesbrough over the murders of prostitutes, Denise's dreams of a happy second marriage, even a family at 40 years old, are challenged as circumstantial evidence seems to point the finger at her husband, Phil. Developed at the Bore Place workshop with the aim of telling a contemporary story with a small cast, Hysteria by Steve Chambers addresses the fragile dynamics of a marriage and the taboo subject of men paying for sex and how a community can so easily be whipped into a suspicious frenzy. Christine Kavanagah plays Denise, Michael Hodgson plays Phil, Celia Hewitt plays Kath, Colleen Prendergast plays Sheree, Sean Baker plays Jimmy, Jude Akuwudike plays John, Sally Orrock plays Nurse and Michael Shelford and Tony Bell play the policemen.
