Final night

10 Nov

the bitter-sweetness of closing a show— we had a full house and a very appreciative audience– a good show–and then the strange experience of the audience leaving and the crew striking the set. Within about 30 minutes the grey shrink-wrapped strange world of Weightless had peeled away to hardboard and old sheets of plastic. It’s now gone, and I wonder if this play will see the light of the stage again. It may, but it will be another incarnation. That particular world is gone. No wonder theatre folks prop up bars all over the country.

Now maybe I’ll write about other things again.
