Time can be short on the city streets. Whether you're the local entertainer cornered by the river, or the young man taking a short cut across the park, your life is never worth as much as the used notes you've pulled from the cash point or the loose change rattling in your pocket. So what burns in your mind as the blade is held against your throat? and how do you feel when it's pushed into your chest? What's the last thing you think of as you drift out of consciousness as your eyes glaze over and your clothes soak in your own blood? It's of little consideration to some. the wasted, ignorant misused gift of life holds little over so many .then again, you never know who you might find lurking in the shadows.

In principle A one man performance, however the original production Also featured An Additional live performer playing the 'Victim'. This can be Adapted to suit.
