Ashes to Ashes

Harold Pinter's Ashes to Ashes.

Pause.

Read it at lunch today. Matthew liked this one much better than I did.

Pause.

My initial reaction was yech! Too weird. As I am thinking about it more I am intrigued by the theme of dreams throughout the piece. Is she telling him about a dream? Is the whole thing perhaps a dream? The end (which is really the part that made me dislike the whole thing) makes a lot more sense if the whole thing is a dream.

Pause.

Perhaps it makes much more sense in production. Especially when the playwright is directing.

I'm still slogging my way through Anna and the King of Siam. Every day another chapter...

Pause. :-)
