I am not a big Morris Panych fan, but I thought this was fascinating. The premise is odd – a man standing on a wall planning to jump to his death is interrupted by the inhabitants of the building, all of whom have strange lives to share.
The play is described as a comedy and there is no doubt that it is funny. But it is also an observation on the absurdity of life and the strange ways people try to cope. The use of the Magritte painting of the man in the bowler hat, with the apple in front of his face reinforces the absurdity of it all.
Good cast – especially Peter Anderson as The Man.
