About the play: The workshop was buzzing with big ideas. Discussions leapt from stem cells to religion, ethics, and them to immortality. If you could extend a life by weeks, months, years, what effect would that have on the way we lived, the way we loved? I’ve tried to capture that big idea in a short play, exploring how the amount of time we have together changes relationships and asking how much is enough. JW
