After a big night out on the booze, Blossom and Max wake up together in Blossom's cheap inner city boarding house room. Eviction is hanging heavily over Blossom, and when the landlady disturbs her fantasies, realities hit home and lead to tragedy.

Note: the play may be produced as either radio or stage. Scene 1 can be produced on its own if desired, as a 40 minute piece.

Commissioned by ABC Radio National Drama Unit.
