The plot concerns two characters, Itchy and Knee, who discuss the mystery of a place called Woodpecker Plateau. As they await the entrance of their dire arch-nemesis, Professor Unfrenabulous, they must endure choral drama, tableau, body-bag dream sequences, a nineteenth-century operetta, stichomythia, monologues, pauses, Shakespeare, Beckett, Pinter, and Enya.
