How do you become the last man alive, and what would you then say to God if you happened to meet him?  What would God say to you? 

Wellington playwright Harry Meech has created a puzzling conundrum in See? a taster from Plains, which won Harry the Playmarket Young Playwright's Award in 2009. 

The script has since been developed with assistance from expert dramaturgs and received a staged in reading in the United States. This is the first time that the script will hit the stage in its native country. 

See? shows its colours most clearly as it approaches its genuinely tragic subject material with a wry smile and quiet chuckle.  Harry's script tip-toes the line between meaningful and meaningless effortlessly, presenting the audience with something that transcends its narrative; a resounding question … What happens if you push the button?
