  §  Dramatis Personae Man (m), 31, an attractive young man; Woman (f), 22, an attractive young woman.

  §  Synopsis “Man sits comtemplative in a park describing the eternal connections of life . . . the ouroborous . . . the beginning and the end . . . the snakes which grabs its tail. His lover, dying from AIDS has killed himself. Woman has just aborted the child of a one-night stand. Each suffers, each is connected. . . . They realize just how much.

  §  Comment “First produced with success by Realism Update Theatre, Chicago [U.S.A.], this play derives its power through simplicity of production and action. Language is poetic yet not preachy. No actual set is needed, and other than a couple of hand props and a blanket, nothing else is required.”

  §  Themes adulthood, connectivity, death, loss.
