Synopsis
 
High on the rooftops of government buildings, strange scientific advances are rumoured to be in progress.

Secret doorways have been built into cine-screens showing films of vast unspoilt wilderness. The Ministry of Environment is filling these locations with waste to become their newly established 'Garbage Archives'. Waste Disposal has been solved for Humankind.

But the fantastical imaginings of the employees charged with the maintenance of this new dimension are resulting in escaped pterodactyls, Yetis and giant crows.

The show was inspired by the privatization of The Water Board and a water pollution disaster in Camelford at that time.

The show ended with a real vertical Devon waterfall in a cupboard with water cascading down over rocks and mosses. After the audience gets a fleeting glimpse the door is slammed shut and rendered out of bounds forever. This show (rather hilariously in retrospect though certainly not at the time) caused a mass walk-out of Stanislavskiists when it appeared in Oslo. As they left in mounting numbers they had to climb over the rope that connected us to the film world.
