The Siren Song of Stephen Jay Gould / Wakefield Idle 2013

Double Bill at the Black Sheep Inn October 1, 2013

The Siren Song of Stephen Jay Gould

A one act comedy by Benjamin Bettenbender, directed by Claude Laroche, performed by the Wakefield Players.

A man lands on a woman after trying to throw himself off a bridge in a botched suicide attempt. On the quiet riverbank, as he attends to her minor injury, he learns that she too was planning to end her life over a broken heart.

An argument ensues over the relative seriousness of their respective losses and the nature of existence. Will this unexpected collision lead each of them back to the dark place where they started, or will they start anew?

NOTE: Mild adult language
