Maria, the second violin in an orchestra, is having an affair with the rather arrogant and controlling conductor, and keeps uncovering clues that convince her he's betraying her with someone. This series of ambiguous clues leads her step by step into an increasingly obsessive nightmare of jealousy, and she finds herself stalking a woman she discovers looks alarmingly like her. Spying outside the mysterious woman's house, following her to odd locations, she becomes even more obsessed by the woman than she is by her boyfriend, and slowly, inexorably, her personality begins to change, perhaps for the better, perhaps not. This intense, powerful and darkly funny roller coaster of a monologue takes us on a wild ride deep into the world of jealousy, passion, and nightmare. A wonderful showpiece for an actress of intelligence, humor and power. Published in Machiavelli & Other Plays.
