Production notes
Recorded September 2003
Released December 2003

Lana - the Lovely Lana to her friends - is a comedienne. A female comedian, her life's work is to make people happy. To make people laugh. A laugh to Lana is like magic and gold.

Sadly, there isn't a lot of laughs in Lana's life. She is depressed, alone, afraid, and despises all that there is in the Universe. She's someone who feels she has reached life's end, and is prepared to take any means to end it all.

But what if someone were to walk into her life - try and sort things out? To try and change things? Would a funny little man who tells stories of monsters out there in the depths of space really be able to make a difference?
