"..Pineda’s direction perfectly brings the script to life with an overflow of finely crafted choices. Each scene is choreographed with a deft hand – keenly wringing out each emotion, each nuance and each spine tingling twist, to keep the audience on their toes."

Australian Arts Review

" adaptation with main stage potential."

                                                        The Age

When Pierre Anthon declares that nothing matters, he leaves his ninth-grade classroom, climbs a plum tree, and stays there. To prove to him that life is full of worth his classmates make a "pile of meaning" and sacrifice things of great importance; Dungeons & Dragons books, a fishing rod, a pair of green sandals, a pet hamster…  

Each offering becomes more extreme. And what if, after all these sacrifices, the pile still isn’t meaningful enough to bring Pierre Anthon down?
