Death is a chance to prove your lastability... if lastability was a word. Every Few Seconds aims to celebrate life through reflection in the face of another's death. Each scene represents the struggle to smile through tears that one must face when losing a loved one. Different levels of grief and loss are explored through an optimistic point of view in this One-Act culminating in a Epilogue/Monologue that reveals the power one's love has even in the afterlife.
