"A beautifully structured poetic exploration of madness" - The List
"In turns heartbreaking and hilarious...a superbly written tragic-comic one-hander." - The Adelaide Advertiser
This complex and terrifying play is about a woman who has embraced the illusion of central position she believes she is the center of the universe. Powerful, funny, disturbing and disorienting, this play stretches one actress to the limit of her abilities and takes theatre to the edge of madness.

This complex and terrifying play is about a woman who has embraced the illusion of central position she believes she is the center of the universe, that when she moves from one location it is disassembled by evil demons and reassembled elsewhere, and that the universe exists simply to torment her, distract her from the true nature of things, and give her as much pain as possible. Powerful, funny, disturbing and disorienting, this play stretches one actress to the limit of her abilities and takes theatre to the edge of madness. Published in Cincinnati & Other Plays.
