As events begin to go beyond his bewildered control, the most potent forces in human life and society – love, hate, politics, religion – emerge and dominate. Eventually, The Sweeper struggles to regain control of his delinquent creations, but can he banish them back to the shadows before the Stage Manger returns? All you have to do is imagine …”
