This practice is even extended to how we remember places and write them in history. This way we end up with a life sometimes more worth living than if we decide […]

“Old Times” Haunts Us with the Past

The ghosts of our past are ones we have to learn to live with. They exist around us, stick to us, drain our spirit if we let them. In “Old Times” by Harold Pinter, the ghosts of the past are real and they invade the present life of a couple that has escaped the big city and its ghosts to […]

“No Man’s Land” is a Good Example of How Bold Theater Can Be

Let me begin to say this: art is not supposed to provide a safe space for anyone. Art is a reflection of society, theater its stage mirror.

I’ve seen around that many iterations of the Duke of Gloucester’s rise into kinghood, catch him being both devilish in some and boorish […]

“Rapture, Blister, Burn” Brings Us Deep Into What It Means To Be A Woman

Theater is such an interesting monster. It’s a place where discussions can happen while a story forms around them. It’s a place where we not only suspend our disbelief, but accept it as fact… for at least the runtime of the show.
