Elderly gentleman seeks companion. For conversation, only. Previous confidants include - his mother, Kafka (a dog), Grace Kelly (the beloved and greatly missed), Enok (an elevator), and Diana (a strictly hands-off sex worker turned would be dog walker). Hobbies: gate-crashing funerals and weddings. Says - 'I'm not afraid of dying, but it's nice if someone misses you. Or at least remembers that you once existed.' Bengt Ahlfors' exquisite monologue has been a permanent fixture in the Helsinki repertoire since 2006 and is widely produced throughout Europe. It comes to the Edinburgh Fringe in a translation by Henning Koch.
