With Cally Spooner.
A piece for the theatre representing a looping micro-crisis between two states; the life of the mind, and life with others.
Beginning with a narcissistic monologue, stuck on loop in an obsolete cassette player, this primary state is interrupted, insulted and debunked by state two; a dialogue, on public life and good manners. Played against a frenetic, projected self-referential backdrop of narcissism, politicians, theatres, hollywood self-love public acting and the sociologist, Richard Sennet, a schizophrenic one-act tug emerges, as the cast struggle to find something useful to say in public.
