A new play by award-winning Scottish writer Keir McAllister. Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations. For five minutes a day, he finds a little solace and peace alone on the bench. Sandy is mourning the loss of his Maggie. The bench is his memorial to her memory. So begins an epic conflict. A conflict that will change them both. A comedy about safe spaces and the people that fill them... Waiting for Godot meets Still Game. 'McAllister's script twists elegantly' **** (List).
