Two characters are trapped in Purgatory - one by his public service view of the world and the other by her disbelief in her own death. They dance around each other, with the official trying to complete his routine task, and the young woman gradually coming to terms with her real character and the fact that she is destined for hell, not heaven.

First produced by Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) as part of Fresh Ink in 2009. Can be performed by two women, or by a woman and a man
