Five people are trapped in a nondescript place and do not know why they are there. They don't know why they need to continue peeling potatoes. They are trying to find out. A play about the absurdity of existence, the futile search for meaning and logic in our daily actions.

"To live means to move from one space to the next, while making the maximum effort not to crash." From Georges Perec’s "Species of Spaces and Other Pieces."
