A parody of classical forms and contemporary mores, this "short work for the lyric theatre" concerns the reign of haggard old "Mad Queen May" of England. Disguised behind a mask, the hag is actually the young and beautiful "Fair Queen May." Her narcissistic and nearly naked young lover, the poet Dominique, can only begin his terrible poems with the pronoun 'J.' Queen May can only watch as revolt and anarchy bring her reign to an end, but she is energized by the arrival of a "Handsome Young Revolutionary" who steals into the castle to murder her. A campy frolic with touches of absurdity, The Pronoun 'I' ends with a mob scene and a lover's embrace.
