This dark comedic piece wrestles with the idea of love and gender-roles. Are men really only after one thing and do women really still believe in love? Who is corrupting whom at this point? Story: Tommy is a romantic at heart but his love life just doesn’t seem to take off. So he finally visits Stella, a once-renowned beautiful and empowering “love-doctor”, only to find a now alcoholic, disheveled and cynical woman, who is trying to convince him that love does not exist. The question remains just who is the Greater Fool in this brief but thought-provoking encounter?
