    CONTEMPORARY
      COMEDY



    Jesse Fair & Cindy Derby in the 2008 Chapman University, California production directed by Jessie Randle

    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.
