A man sits on a bench at the edge of an abyss watching the human race rush into it.
Along comes a second man contemplating "a heroic dive."
What is the abyss and what are these men doing here?
Terrifying concepts and visions of deepening mysteries emerge from their confrontation,
and they conclude that life is precious after all.

SCOTTISH PRODUCTIONA journey which began in the Assembly Rooms and saw the production team of Jannuzzi's surreal black comedy travel to Brora, Falkirk and Belfast, ended fittingly, back in Wick in early August. The players team were once more proudly displaying both the Scottish and UK championship trophies. A great achievement for a provincial club. and an eight month roller coaster ride of emotions. Personal success once more for Donald Farmer as director, Andrew Craigie and Kevin Farmer as cast members along with Allan Bruce, Robbie Anderson, Peter Stewart, Jack Steele, James Steven and Kathlyn Harper who were all savouring the feeling for a second time.
