A written performance piece showing a character, a contemporary woman with an epic nature who also performs a scene from 'Marat Sade' playing Charlotte Corday who suffered from Melancholia and Narcolepsy. The piece explores Margaret Whitford Luce Irigara’s idea of ‘the feminine hysteric enacting a drama in which she endlessly demands proofs of affection, attention, approval, validation from the obsessional male subject".
