Additional Info

An old blind writer sits in a circle of light in a dark library asking why he doesn't just sit in the dark, why a raven is like a writing desk and what is the nature of labyrinths. He hears footsteps and smells perfume. The intruder is a beautiful woman who may or may not be a character in a story he is writing. She brings a knife from the labyrinth of mirrors. Someone is going to die in this unusual play about art, time and the relationship between fiction and flesh.
