On the theme of Attention:

"...It made me feel a little scared to think that maybe there’s a whole class of things that I'm unaware of. That I am un-self-conscious of. And that I'm going to be forced to pay attention to. I can't quite see how I'm going to stay in the present if there are all of these things I have to pay attention to.  It all goes by so fast, it’s confusing, and I feel like I'm not really in control of it. Like it’s sweeping me along and I only have time to pick up on a few things..." Cruise Control, The Willies, 1993

Round and Round: a sexfarcetragedy is a play about agreements, what they mean and how we keep them and don't keep them.  Do we even know what we are agreeing to at times?  4 old friends slip in and out of love as they wind around and around themselves, like an oroboros, they eat their own tails...
