Considering what we do…

The most effective moments in the theatre are those that appeal to basic and commonplace emotions–love of woman, love of home, love of country, love of right, anger, jealousy, revenge, ambition, lust, and treachery.
-CLAYTON HAMILTON, Theory of the Theatre

The color, the grace and levitation, the structural pattern in motion, the quick interplay of live beings, suspended like fitful lightning in a cloud, these things are the play, not words on paper, nor thoughts and ideas of an author, those shabby things snatched off basement counters at Gimbel’s.
-TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, Afterword to Camino Real
