In the play we meet six people: three women and three men. The play is an examination of our collective weaknesses and the fragility of children. It asks questions about notions surrounding fear. Oscillating between humour and sorrow, between remembrance and the here and now, the characters builds a portrait of the girl in a yellow raincoat, standing forlorn in the rain. Who was she, and is she you or me?
