A clutter of furniture hides numerous performers who are on stage for the duration of the show. The stage is lit by domestic lamps that buzz and flicker as if connected to faulty wiring. A single, unstable character is established, played by whoever appears from behind the furniture. As the performer disappears, another pops up and continues as the character. In this way the continuity of the character is constantly made and broken. Notes are written by the character and stuck up to inform subsequent performers of the characters brief history and of his relationships.
