The Maria

This is a play about communication. And loneliness. And the world. The utter, horrible chaos of the world. And your place within that. Your place in all of that. You and the world. This collapsing world. What's your place in that? You think about that as you have a drink with someone you've never met before. That'll anchor you to something, you think. Something. Anything. Just concentrate on another pair of eyes, if you can. Everything is falling apart around you. But just concentrate on the eyes. That's all you can do, right?
