The play takes us to a unique location, a man’s interior soundscape. The cacophonic urban sounds that assault him from outside have pervaded his inner world. He cannot control their presence and intensity. We meet him in his room, follow him through the streets of a city, commuter trains, and locations such as highway and tunnels where cars playfully blast their horns. Noise dominates his thoughts and personal life. Driven to deafening himself, the sounds of his own physical interior merely substitute for those outside. The man searches but finds no understandable cause for his loss of control over these sonic onslaughts.
