Synopsis: A Cool Guy is about to read his newspaper on a park bench when a woman leaves a box next to him with the instructions not to touch or move or open it. She leaves before he can protest. A variety of characters arrive each with a new theory as to the box's contents. A severed head, a bomb, biologically dangerous chemicals. An absurd play which will be suitable for young actors.

Other Information: We hope to specifically target youth actors 16-25 with this play but we are flexible. 
This play is one of four making up our season of OAPs.
