"Price's images and dialogue are so vivid that one never misses the set and props." - Night-Life Magazine, Buffalo

Winner of the 1996 National Playwriting Award for best one-act play.

This is a play for advanced actors in which the tragedy of a young boy's death is examined. As the story unfolds, the mysteries start to pile up: Was it suicide? Could it have been prevented? Who is responsible? His mother? The babysitter?

Written in the unique Ladder Play format, the text runs in vertical columns to allow for fuller choral work. If you are looking for a challenge for your students, this is the play for you.
