After 33 years together Steve Abbott and his muse The Sandman are parting company. Where does an unemployed muse, based on Steve’s mother find work? So a rather heartbroken Sandy is undertaking a series of farewell shows to raise money for a new beginning and to spill the beans on Steve’s reckless lifestyle and controlling manner, while doing a show he wants to do.
Sandy discusses difficulties being a muse/alter ego, the problems of a relationship with such a massive age difference, the problem when your host is bankrupt financially, emotionally and totally unwilling to entertain any new ideas. Sandy reveals all, chronicling Steve’s financial records, lack of desire for life, and comparing the show Steve would have Sandy do with the type of material Sandy loves to do. It’s also a chance to say goodbye to a minor celebrity.
