Play Title:Second Chance
Runtime:11-30 minutes
Synopsis:Is it possible to alter destiny? It is Tiresa's birthday, and her brother, Oeddie, and two closest friends, Ann and Jo, have come over to celebrate. But Tiresa's merry mood suddenly changes to one of puzzlement, and then of horror, as she claims to have arrived back from a time several moments into the future, when something terrible happened. She cannot remember what, but is desperate to prevent it from happening again, while Oeddie insists that in a deterministic universe nothing can be changed. To prove his point, he forces her to open the final present in spite of her resistance, initiating the very sequence of tragic events Tiresa has been struggling to stop.
