The Suicide of Solitude

The Suicide of Solitude

 

Tragifarce in 13 steps, with one intermission and one jump.

He and She are introduced in a strange location – a rooftop by night. The woman wants to jump (or does she?) and the man tries to stop her (why?). Also present are an unknown figure (alive or dead? or a dummy?) and two cats, waiting for a third that is yet to arrive. Anticipating some fun, the cats watch the people and comment on the performance. The action takes several wild turns: a rescue and an assault, a murder investigation and the events that provoked it, a confession and a love story, the arrival of a UFO and a scientific discovery... The genre changes in a similarly kaleidoscopic manner, from detective thriller to farce, fantasy to drama. And in the finale, only a suicide can really and truly happen...
