[...] one of the funniest, smartest, and most cathartic experiences I’ve had in theatre.

About the play

Two men are waiting on a subway platform.

All Tim wants is to make a decision. Colin just wants to watch him make it.

“With a slightly absurdist and tragicomic tone, Please Stand Clear boldly traverses intriguing and uncomfortable territory with questions about our responsibility to ourselves and the people who love us. It is a thoroughly entertaining and poignant experience.” - Istvan Dugalin
