THE STORY: PHILIP, Claire’s son, addresses the audience next. Stylistically he is her polar opposite, a mass of anxiety and tension, who lives a life without intimacy or human contact. Fearful and full of self-loathing, Philip becomes fixated on a young man, whose name he doesn’t know. Terrified of rejection, he lives his life for furtive glances. Finally conquering his fear, he attempts to make contact—an act of bravery that leads to a terrifying and violent result. (1 man.)
Included in The Eros Trilogy.
