When his motorcycle buddy dies in an accident, Jerome starts obsessing about death. "The end of I" weighs on him like an anchor dragging him into madness. Only two things can calm him: racing like the wind on his motorcycle and lying in his loving wife's arms. She is getting worried -
particularly when he suggests that they visualize death together. Funny, morbid, true, this play is a favorite of college theater departments.
"The meaning of life in an intricate web of obsession, strength and love." -Bernard Parry, review of Priestley Center for the Arts production, UK
First presented at the West Bank Cafe, Manhattan, New York, 1989, directed by Anita Khanzadian.
