|Synopsis||Miles Bowen, a down and out, wakes up one morning in a drunken stupor, bent on commiting suicide that day. He finds himself sharing a derelict room with an equally drunken down and out, Wendy Dobson.
As they face the day ahead, they refelect on their different situations and how they arrived at their current state. Miles soon realises that Wendy is not a full shilling. She seems to drift in and out of a mental haze sometimes talking sense and sometimes talking rubbish.
As they recount their lives, they realise they were the victims of a perverted society in their formative years. As the subject of suicide becomes a talking point, they feel it's time to leave the mortal coil, but not before baring their souls for the last time.|

|Production||An open stage with plenty of scope to dress down the set. All the action takes place downstage centre. Props are sleeping bags, rubbish bags and plastic bottles. Distressed clothing for the actors are a must. The audience must smell the filth and degradation that is encrusted on their sad bodies and troubled minds. The deft interchange between the characters is paramount. Some comedy is there and the audience will warm to it. The dramatic ending should leave the audience with food for thought.|
