PRECIPICE

by Tommy Murphy

Four thirteen-year-old boys dare each other to jump from a cliff into the harbour. One can't do it. He remains on stage summoning the courage to leap as scenes from the future reveal the characters at various stages of adolescence. Then one of the boys on the cliff reveals a secret power. Like the audience, Yusuf can see the future. Initially his premonitions are fun, and aim to reassure the boy who can't jump. Then a darker premonition is exposed as one of the boys' futures goes blank. How will Yusuf use this knowledge? Will anyone listen?
