Delivered in a finely crafted, rapid-fire, stand-up, monologue style that brings to mind Spalding Gray, it has a decidedly off-off Broadway feel about it.
American Monfrooe is nervously psyche deep in rehearsals for the "part of her life", playing patron saint of death, Santa Muerta. To get to grips with the role, her character study prep involves seeing the world around her through the eyes of death. So she neurotically, and at times self-indulgently, contemplates the pros and cons of mortality (ours and her own), while feeding her goldfish, out in the world, or backstage as she prepares to go on. There's even the introduction of some puppetry (a segment featuring the black dog of depression no less).
