A monologue from the play by Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros
Tessa is all dressed up and about to go out with the Boss’s daughter, which is not something she’s looking forward to.
Jonathan, who is like an uncle to her, reluctantly shares a joint with Tessa.
Her cozy relationship with Jonathan, combined with a few hits of weed make it impossible for her to keep a secret.
Her brand new love for Catoni, who is completely out of her frame of reference, is waking her up in every way possible.
His name is Catoni. He’s half Native American, quarter Dominican, quarter Haitian and wicked gorgeous.
And he’s so amazing and deep the grandson of a chief. A f***ing chief!
I’m totally obsessed with his p*nis—which is attached to a beautiful body which is attached to a beautiful head within which there lies a beautiful expansive mind.
The porter job in our building is only part-time.
His long-term plan is to save enough money to open an alcohol and drug rehab in Shin-necock. He lives on the reservation there and belongs to an actual tribe.
In the Hamptons! He wants to fight the fight for reparations, a return of territories, he goes to conferences …
Seriously, there’s this big argument among the tribe on whether or not they should open a casino on the rez and,
of course, he’s like totally against it because he says it’s all part of the endless alienation of his people’s true nature,
enshrining money, lust and dis-humanity. Like, is that not the coolest word ever!! Dis-humanity!
He says that we’re all living under a skewed social order that operates under a turbo-powered capitalistic paradigm,
seriously dedicated to the enrichment and fortification of the white man, who he believes is basically a parasitic mutation feeding off the planet, blindly dedicated to its own demise.
He says that the real purpose of being born is to align ourselves to the divine forces informing the world around us and within us.
He says that we’ve lost the plot of what it means to be human. And, oh my god, his body – I swear, Jonathan, just looking at him makes me feel so—
happy, deeply happy which is progress you know, cuz I go through these seriously f***ed up phases of hating close contact because it’s just so awkward and scary.
But Catoni says awkward is real and real is sexy, and when he talks like that everything just, just falls away … like all my clothes for instance.
