Synopsis: Death visits a mental hospital and finds that the mentally ill are more cleaver than he expected. When the Angel of Death visits a mental hospital to collect someone on his list, he accidentally reveals himself to the wrong person. After struggling to convince the patients of his identity, Death attempts to correct his potentially fatal mistake and demands to know which one of them is actually the one he came for. But the patients refuse to give up their friend, even after Death insists that if he doesn’t perform the touch of death within the allotted time, the consequences could be disastrous. Death must resort to drastic measures and even joins the group session in order to win this deadly battle of wits. With a perfect balance of dark humor and pathos, this piece is ideal for contest or an evening of one acts, offering several challenging character arcs.
