In this moving fantasy, set at the funeral of a ne'er-do-well, the spirit of the dead man is escorted to the balcony by his Friend

Others appear:

Mother and Daughter
Husband and Wife

And the Girl the Man was to have married

The Man pleads to be allowed to speak to the Girl

He defends his past

The thoughts of people at the funeral flow out and the spirit of the Man rails at judgements he cannot affect

The play unfolds in a beautiful blend of pathos, philosophy and ironic humor
