A man sits before us in a chair, telling a fever-dream of a story: about a cocktail party he's just come back from that went disastrously wrong, about channel-surfing between a mesmerizing surgery and the world's strangest action movie -- all while quoting his mysterious, enigmatic wife. Slowly a pattern begins to emerge from his spiral of words, as his tale loops back on itself, stitching together seemingly random threads into a hypnotic whole. A bracingly funny and disquieting play about a man who keeps asking the question: "How do I live in a world in which I am doomed to die?"
