In 1790, Mary Girard is committed to an asylum. After Mary became pregnant by another man, her husband had her declared legally insane. Now, Mary sits in a chair as the "furies" dance around and impersonate people from her past. Polly, her husband's most beloved mistress is informing her about her sad future. By the end of this haunting and highly theatrical piece, she has grown rather convincingly into her diagnosis.
First produced at The Painted Bride Art Center by Theatre Center Philadelphia on July 4, 1976.
