Irene and Vince have arrived at a familiar impasse in their relationship. Irene wants more from life but, as things stand, is that really possible? Darwin isn't the paradise they were hoping for and a recent abortion has pushed Irene to the point of giving Vince his marching orders. Will Irene finally take that step? Vince attempts to mollify Irene with a stolen cat and visions of a better life in Queensland. This one act play explores a moment in the relationship of two people with limited options and a healthy distrust of blah-speak.
