A man lies in pain on the bathroom floor of a hotel room in a poor country where he speaks a foreign tongue. Through a series of observations and memories he explores the cultural, economic, and emotional divide between his own privileged existence and that of the other 90 percent of the world--the people who make his life of appreciating art and film possible. Wallace Shawn is known for his urbane sophistication, accessibility, and humor. He plays against these qualities in this penetrating, difficult, and guilt-ridden production, reminiscent of THE FALL by Albert Camus. Beware--the challenging image of "collaborating against the poor" may stick with you for some time. B.P. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
