"Man" has woken up hungover and "woman" is sitting, having done nothing apart from drink water since he's left. This one act play is set in the couple's apartment in New York City. The play is made up of mixture of dialogue and monologues about not knowing how to communicate with one another properly and being stuck in a deadly yet comfortable relationship. They are in a devastating yet inescapable relationship. They look to one another for comfort, knowing that they cause each other pain. Fear of the real world keeps them in an additcive cycle.
In this current time, we are constantly worried about what Trump is going to do next or who's going to win the election or how we're going to meet our next deadline or pay our rent. This play explores the comfort of stopping and talking to a loved one. Williams juxaposes this with the impact of different problems for different individuals thus the difficulty of being in the moment for someone who needs you. What happens when our greatest connection is our greatest weakness?
