Time will Tell: City Face

Location: City Main

Features in: KNOCK KNOCK

The seat of power. The highest office in the land. The place where all decisions are final.

They call it the Hot Seat. The Mayor’s office in Coldford is not those who can’t take burn. City Face derives its name from the huge clock that sets the time for City Main and beyond to Greater Coldford.

City Main has it’s distinctive sky line in large part due to Fullerton Construction. As viewed from the northern town of Bourtnon.

From the time of the first mayor of the Shady City it has been both an inspiring and terrifying building. It was built by the Fullerton family and funded on Owen coin centuries before the Coldford we know. The first mayor, Jock Wilson, took his place with pride. Public addresses were held on the lawns out front and the new mayor was to make his first official address to the people. Mayor Wilson didn’t show up. His vice – Peter Hardy – made the apologies. Jock was on his way. He would be with them soon. There was a desperate cry from the top of the clock face. A scream broke through the crowd’s tension. The gathering watched as the body of the mayor tumbled to his death. The lawns had only just been completed when they received their first blood stain. This set precedent for how messy the politics of the Shady City would get.

Micky Doyle has his eye on the Hot Seat.

Since then it has been the site of executions, white collar crime crackdowns and it has produced the laws, regulations and standards that make the Shady City what it is.

A uniquely constructed building. The large time piece almost acts as a doomsday clock. The face of the entire city is one of time ticking by. Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Everyone look up at the giant clock.

Time is ticking by for the residents of Harbour House. A unique rehab facility with standards, laws and regulations all of its own.

Home of the Golden Boy: Starkland Park

Location: The Shanties

Features in: KNOCK KNOCK ; HARBOUR HOUSE

Starkland Park is the home of the COLDFORD ATHLETIC football team. Unlike its City Main neighbour CITY STADIUM, Starkland Park was developed from humble beginnings. They call the Shanties area a poverty trap because poor education and social deprivation make it difficult for those born in the area to better themselves. A beautifully constructed stadium that grew to rival the richest teams in the league, Starkland stands as a reminder that anything is possible.

Coldford Athletic badge is worn with pride.

A regular visitor to the stadium is artist, David Finn. He’s a life long Athletic supporter and even when his journey brought him to HARBOUR HOUSE he kept his focus on the stadium. It gave him the confidence to battle his addiction. With the cheers of the crowd in his ears and the excitement of match day in his stomach the walls of the rehab facility don’t seem so close.

David settles down for the latest Coldford Athletic match.

Like all places in the Shady City though there is always a danger especially when large crowds have gathered. It has seen its share of blood shed when fierce rivalry with COLDFORD CITY boils to violence. Get crowd control ready. The fixtures are in.

Look me in the Eye

When I was a little boy they said I was mean.

When I grew older they tried to hide me away.

The only one able to keep my mind keen,

Was the teacher who came to visit me each day.

I listened, smiled, said what he wanted to hear.

I even pretended to be sweet and kind.

Now he’s in Harbour House where no one can go near.

Coming 2020.

Broken and disgraced. A music teacher, an artist and an old show girl form an unlikely friendship. Inside Harbour House all they have is each other.

But its fibres are thin. They can break and need recovery.

Not a psychiatric unit but a place of rehabilitation.

I’m ready for it so bring on the next patient.

Then there is a teacher his crimes were many. A creep and a scoundrel with obsessions aplenty.

So bring me your troubled, your addicted and your sick.

Harbour House opens this May, if you have a habit to kick.

Coming 05.02.
