Abstract

This monodrama reflects on the version of ourselves we try to present to the world. Each song leads to the next: giddy happiness followed by the inevitable plunge into depression, then anger and embarrassment for revealing too much to the audience, remorse for lashing out, and finally a plea for the world to only see the singer’s ‘best’ side.
