When an American plane crash-lands in a remote valley of a distant country, the residents of a small rural village take in the wounded pilot. But should they help him, murder him, or use him as a pawn in a dangerous game with the enemy?

To the Farmer his presence is bound to bring trouble; the Captain seeks the attention of the world media spotlight; a Trader wonders if he can be sold or ransomed. But for Evie, the farmer’s headstrong daughter, he is a fallen angel.

A funny, intelligent, topical and very human parable that takes a wry look at how the world sees America and America sees the world, from hot British playwright, David Grieg.

“One of the most intellectually stimulating dramatists around . . . a richly provocative new play” – Michael Billington, Guardian

A New Zealand Premiere.
