Last Train to Oxford - a thought thriller.

A dramatised adaptation of John Schad’s documentary novel
by Fred Dalmasso & John Schad

Someone called Jacques Derrida, the philosopher, someone called him on the phone, someone who was dead. A mystery, he thought, a mystery that begins in 1968 when Derrida visits Oxford and there he dies, several times. Murder, he thought. So too thought my father, an Oxonian, in his final nightmare years. And so we investigate, not just the Oxford of the 1960s but the Oxford of the 1930s and a public school in the middle of the Second World War. In the end, the question is: 'Can one die of another's death? Or can one live?'
