Description: The player gets played. An analogous tale about men seeing woman as instrumental objects layered with introspective glimpses inside the psyche and the duality that challenges our reactions. Explores the themes of roles in society, feminism, equality and acceptance, narcissism, Utopian vs Dystopian society and our control or lack of within the social ranks; a very timely piece.
