Staid and stuffy businessman Mr A has his office invaded by a nameless youth intent on general obfuscation. As This Great Gap of Time unfolds, a sit in turns hostage situation without rhyme or reason.
"Things take on an air of the sublime as the upstanding gentleman is made to dance the Pride of Erin on point of death. This Great Gap of Time is a great bit of apparent whimsy, hiding beneath its cloak all the fury of the class wars and the ever-present generation-gap." (Brendan McCallum, 2007)
