    I really liked this. It's simple and theatrical and surprising. It seems perfect for our present moment: a monologue (or maybe more voices) that can be performed over videochat or the phone or over text message. And it's about the revolution and queer relationality... and possession.

For the revolution we must be able to imagine otherwise, to imagine relations that are different, technologies that are different, ways of caring for each other differently. But most of us have a failure of imagination. This play believes that the theatre can be about re-imagining or even about imagination as such. This play is also about relating queerly. And about Michel de Montaigne and Étienne de la Boétie. And it's about exercise, or at least about personal trainers. (Is this also an AIDS play? / Of course it's an AIDS play what a question.)
