About this event

An executioner waits patiently for his intended customer to arrive when he's struck for the first time with a question. Perplexed, he wonders is he right in following through with his legally sanctioned task to punish those who break the law, or is he about to commit judicial murder?

Presented by:
Beating Heart Theatre Company

An executioner waits patiently in the execution chamber 45 minutes before he conducts his job. He sits and ponders his work and his life waiting, wondering if this task of his is right. As he ponders this he comes to the realisation that he is unsure. Is he following through with his legally sanction task to uphold right and punish those who break the law or is he about to conduct judicial murder? A new ethical and philosophical quandary by Adelaide writer Simon Lancione
