quote 2015-07-27 11:52
Because once it was paradise, you see? And you could hear it - heaven singing in your eyes. But we sinned, and God took it away, took away music until we forgot we even heard it but sometimes you get a sort of glimpse - music or a poem - and it reminds you of what it was like before all the sin.

Some Explicit Polaroids
Some Explicit Polaroids - Mark Ravenhill Some old-school in-yer-face theater to remind me that theater doesn't have to stay up in the clouds. The play fits in the same shelf as stuff like LaBute and McDonagh - it's got something to say and it's going to say it in a way that feels like a gut-punch. Unfortunately, Ravenhill never quite takes the arguments anywhere. He says that you can't stay an angry young man your whole life and that connection is essential... but most of the thoughts I had about the play made me feel like I need to see it in order to see if it was something actually in the play or if it was just my mind jumping off from this starting point.A few more thoughts on the same vein at Raging Biblioholism: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-lj

Shopping and Fucking - Mark Ravenhill Read this for my Modern British Drama class in college. It's rough and perverse in everything it does, but it really hits the nail on the head. Absolutely love it in its horrible truth.I'm also very, very interested to know how this is acted out on stage! I'd love to see a production of this.

Plays for Young People: "Citizenship"; "Scenes from Family Life"; "Totally Over You" (Play Anthologies)
Plays for Young People: Citizenship / Scenes from Family Life / Totally Over You - Mark Ravenhill Good ideas, underwhelming execution. Felt a little ham-fisted.

pool (no water) & Citizenship
Pool (No Water) & Citizenship - Mark Ravenhill Pool (No Water) is a dazzling piece of theatre. In a year of excellent theatre in Melbourne it came up maybe top for me. And yet Red Stitch theatre saw it as their 'dangerous' piece, the one that might fail. In that case, thank heavens they were brave enough to put it on.

This is one of my 'crawl over broken glass to see it' theatre experiences.
