About the Character:

Maria, is a seductive nightclub singer who sleeps with Sartorius in Mexico City when he is having an alcoholic breakdown. She is introduced to Sartorius by Pablo at the Café Chagrin on the Mexican Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, when he is contemplating suicide on his 50th birthday at a conference to promote a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly , and as a “Sister of Mercy,” her sexual kindness keeps Sartorius from killing himself. Dressed as a “Catrina.” or elegant lady in a death’s mask, reminiscent of the ancient Aztec “Lady of the Dead”—-Mictecacihuatl—and offering him sexual comfort and narcotic drugs, she becomes an icon and guide for Sartorius into a surreal world, from the Club Paradiso to the Teatro Magico—The Magic Theater–For Madmen Only! She also introduces Professor Sartorius to Tiresias/Teresa, a bi-sexual nightclub singer, which turns into a sexual ménage-a-trois which proves a stepping stone into the realm of the hyperreal!
