Precipice is an evocation of the state of being suggested by the play’s title. Suspension, balanced right on the edge, hovering, held in the moment before inevitable change. Precipice is sparse and poetic, fragmented yet often lyrical - a journey into the mind, the imagination, and the desperate, abiding importance of compassion and love.
