by Carolyn Scott-Jeffs In the First World War a pilot hangs between life and death as his plane hurtles towards the ground.
A strange vision, combined with echoes of the poems of Jeffrey Day help him to come to a decision about whether to live or die.
Meanwhile, in 2003, a young heroin addict reads the poetry of Jeffrey Day and contemplates suicide.
She is transported by a reluctant angel back to 1917 where they find the suicidal pilot - who thinks Day was writing about flying not dying.
An ultimately uplifting and optimistic play.
Jen....Natalia Keery-Fisher Alice....Emily Chennery Sam....James Howard Directed by Peter Leslie Wild
