As the play begins, Sammi is an old man waiting for the investigator who will check out his application for a pension

When his visitor arrives there are questions to be answered - questions which stir Sammi's memory of happenings which have brought him to what and where he is, and of the wife and son now lost to him

As the action progresses past and present merge, and the two actors are transformed into other people at other times, illuminating the joy, and sadness, which Sammi has known

In the end he is an old man once more-but the echoes of what went before will linger on in the mind, like a sequence of slowly fading pictures

An eloquent and inventive memory play, in which "character transformation" is cleverly and affectingly employed to recreate a man's life at several crucial stages
