When young would-be actor Michael Whistler meets eccentric Jewish artist Billy Zachariah and his consort Rose Tattoo in a London police station, he is drawn inexorably into their life in Westwoods - a house where portraits are painted, lessons are learnt, and fears confronted. The caustic and babbling Billy becomes a father to him, and Rose a generous mother. But even Michael is not prepared for the final scene in this passion play, when Rose has to carry out a life-saving mission that may destroy her. A profoundly unconventional three-way love story (with cameo appearances by a miraculous painting and a rubber duck), The Hour of Incense is part Narziss and Goldmund and part Enchanted Cottage. A modern re-telling of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, it travels through the complex heart of love and memory, stigma, mental illness, God, and the Holocaust.
