The performance space is split into three scenes. Up centre represents a roadside pavement. Down Right, a desk and chair represent a police station interview room. The empty space down left is inside the station’s holding cell. A car, in which LIZZIE was a passenger, has crashed after a long chase. The driver and a teenage boy have fled the scene. Lizzie is seated on the pavement, detained by police officers. She is unhurt but shocked and afraid.
