‘The Nothing’ takes place in an ambiguous time in what is a representation of “the afterlife”. We follow the character of Bonnie, a girl who has a great passion for life, but has recently passed. As she comes into the afterlife she meets Death. Bonnie desires to return to the living and Death agrees. The rub is, she must remember her final words in life. ‘The Nothing’ is an existential, black comedy exploring the pleasures and pains of life, as they would be seen once one has died. Can Bonnie remember what she said? Or will the final word be Death’s?
