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

A collection of monologues about sleeplessness, guilt, anxiety, and consequences, The Willies returns and returns to what we think about when we are alone, in the night, just us and the audience to our thoughts. Those thoughts that climb on our chests and suck out our souls, or curl up next to us like lovers and tell us what we think we want to hear, and then suck out our souls.
