The piece, by the group Singularity, won Fringe prizes for playwriting (Logan Brown) and direction (Jon Schumacher). The satirical, absurdist plot concerns "a routine traffic stop [that] goes awry, [in which] a police officer makes a split-second decision that puts him on the wrong side of the law." The production features Matthew Benjamin, Andrew Breving, Josh Carpenter, Chris Kipiniak, Susan O'Connor, Marc Webster and Veronica Welch.
Singularity also won a Fringe award for its 2002 offering, a double bill of David Greenspan's Five Frozen Embryos and Christopher Shinn's The Sleepers.
