This play for one man is written by noted African-American playwright Henry Miller and performed by noted opera singer Arthur Woodley. The title character, anonymous in name and age, engages in a one-way conversation with the audience, revisiting crucial events of his life to avoid having to confront the impending funeral of his true love. His disjointed, somewhat frantic dialogue illustrates how people need to tell their stories as a way of making peace with them.
