This moving fantasy takes its mood from thoughts and words at the funeral of a ne'er do well. The deceased defends his life and flails out at those he can no longer reach while the mourners' thoughts - brave, pathetic and petty, but honest - flow out. The play unfolds in a blend of pathos, philosophy, and ironic humor.
