A small suburban choir rehearsal is brought to an abrupt end when Wolf storms in with a gun, demanding silence. He has lived in the flat next door for the last ten years and has finally had enough of their bloody singing. In the siege that follows, Mozart's 'Requiem' gains new meaning for all of them as Wolf forces each chorister to look death in the eye.

' entertaining, funny and rapid-fire mix of parlour farce, siege drama and behind-the-scenes music documentary... The beauty of this play is the way it looks beyond the apparent blandness of suburban life to uncover the passions, aspirations and thwarted ambitions that lead people to creativity as equally as to violent rage.' Stephen Bevis, The West Australian, 13 March 2007
