A couple, just like any other, leave their flat on a Tuesday morning but don't return. Al and Evie. From down the road. Number 58. Married 35 years. No kids. The end of a life lived. Untimely, but real. The spare keys to their house sit across the road, in a neighbour's cutlery drawer. Concealed underneath the ladle, next to the whisk. These daily items that don't seem to mean much. But now, those keys seem to have weight to them. Extinguished Things is a fictional story of a real-life couple, and the stories they left behind.
