Play set in a secure psychiatric ward as they count down the days to the solar eclipse. Read More >

John is determined to get down to Cornwall for the total eclipse. Not easy when you are sectioned in a secure ward. But he knows that he has to be there – its says so in the Book of Revelations. And Judy wants to help him now. By playing Madame Butterfly. Meanwhile a life and death drama is being played out between the psychiatrist treating them both and one of the nurses. As the eclipse draws nearer, the hospital becomes a cosmic battleground. Light and darkness. Life and death. Good and evil. Madness and sanity. The last apocalyptic battle.
