Performed by Fiona Shaw

“Spellbinding! Theater that truly startles! It is not a monologue but a poetic Tower of Babel, teeming with theatrical richness. Shaw gives each fragment its due complexity and conviction. There is, above all, a sweep of passion that makes the evening cohere, compounded of rage, longing, contempt and nostalgia, passive resignation and mad defiance.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
