You are a star, playing demanding roles to critical acclaim on renowned stages. Lately, though, you have been plagued by doubts about where to go from here, as reaching the peak can only mean decline. The constant pressure to outdo yourself and the fear of not living up to your own expectations has made you desperate to create something truly memorable on stage, something that will transcend your mortal coil. The stage lights, the applause, it all feels empty, as you long for the role that will give your life meaning.
