Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations he feels he's failing to fulfil

For five minutes a day he finds a little solace and peace, alone on an isolated bench

That is until Sandy turns up

Sandy is mourning the passing of his Maggie

The bench is his memorial to her memory

A shrine to his loss

As both men attempt to impose their purpose on the bench, so begins an epic conflict of passive aggression

It's a conflict that will change the two of them, and will, maybe, finally answer the eternal question ..

When is a bench not a bench?

A satirical one-act comedy about finding a safe place in a threatening world

Runs about 60 minutes


"Engages right up until the last" ~ The Stage

"A light-hearted take on the travesty that is life" ~ Fringe Guru

"A brilliant job of subverting expectations ... .a series of very funny twists" ~ The Scotsman
