By Edward Bond includes music ("The Army Song") written by David Shaw-Parker.
Cast: 4m., 5w. "Bond imagining the unimaginable" is how the Financial Times critic puts it. We are introduced to a charred, blackened master and we witness scenes from the life he did not live before the rockets destroyed the earth. Then the collaboration of man in his own destruction is shown in his decline into greed and despair. A boy leaves a woman to die under a concrete slab so that he can take the one job left. Cries for help go unheeded in Bond's view of contemporary cultural competition. Area staging.
