Two one act plays from the pen of Canadian psychiatrist, novelist, film maker and artist, David Laing Dawson. Here Not There - In their golden years Charles and Shirley have downsized to a small Condominium. Charles comes home one night very late, a little drunk, carrying a mysterious box. He has decided this is the night he and his wife should confront their failures, their diminishing opportunities, the state of the world, and the very meaning of life.

Finding an abandoned theater, he stands on the stage alone and recounts his descent into mental illness, into schizophrenia. Created by a psychiatrist who has worked for many years with schizophrenic patients, this compelling dramatic monologue presents an accurate depiction of a devastating, costly, much maligned, and misunderstood illness.
