Here is a study of stubbornness, faith or love held beyond a normal point. A man standing sentry by a mailbox can't be persuaded to leave. He refuses to answer questions as to why he stands there from morning through cold winter night. Nothing save a possible ghost and two funny young toughs cause him to move. And when he drags himself back to the box, he outwardly ignores an old woman's words and declines to take a fast look at reality. What is the "normal point" and whose reality do you accept?
Produced at the Establishment Coffee House, Nantucket Island, August 24, 1968. Directed by Ken Ross
