A full-length hour-long play for one actor (with a small part for a boy). Peter’s father yells at him for not being able to shoot a bow; his mother blames dwarves for setting fire to her hair. Six year old Peter retreats into a world based on fairytale logic. As an adult, he marries Alice, woman who demands he set aside these fantasies. They have a wonderful ten years together. Peter thrives. But when Alice is struck by a car and is hovering between live and death, Peter’s fantasies stream back. Only by reframing the moment when his father showed him how to shoot a bow can he face what lies ahead as an adult.
