A Little Night Music

 

By Amy Ng

 

 

 

3am.  A pregnant woman sits on the floor of a locked bathroom, staring at violent rape scenes on a laptop screen. A dominatrix taunts her for being frigid, for faking it with her husband, and for keeping her teenage rape secret from him.  An adolescent girl obsessively recounts the details of the rape, and attacks the pregnant woman because she’s about to  birth a baby girl into a world of rapists. Her husband knocks on the bathroom door.  Will the pregnant woman let him in?   Or will she continue to be imprisoned in her secret world, tormented by these punitive figures of her traumatized psyche?
