A young woman who has missed her tram decides to walk home... What would your mind do if it thought death might be approaching? Would a light simply be switched off, or would you hang above your body or skip lightly up the path to the pearly gates - or would you fight? Maybe you'd panic and imagine possible futures or different pasts that lead another way - or perhaps someone would come to your rescue. A play about death and grief, and how we might react as we try to deny the moment of death. "The play cuts and splices deftly." Time Out, Nov 7-14, 2001 "... written with complex facility... This is no whitewash or sloganeering of a very difficult subject, but explores its many aspects to stunning effect." Joe McCallum, What's On, Nov 14, 2001
