Each time we gather online to hear monologues we are less alone
Why is this?
We are all listening intently and we are listening for signs of life. Listening and looking at the face that is speaking and trying to decide what we think and how we feel. Is this someone we can trust? Is this someone we admire? Pity? Fear? Envy? Adore? And why are they talking right now? What are they after?
Generally speaking in life we tend to wonder most about the people whose intentions are not immediately crystal clear. Because we know that to be alive is to be always seeking, we intuitively search (sometimes unconsciously) for clues as to what this person might be up to. Once we think we've solved that puzzle, everything done and said will make sense to us first as it relates to that thing that seems to be driving this person forward.
And when we discover we were wrong about them, that's one of the most delicious thrills we can have in the theatre.
Join us whenever you crave a little face time with a character whose actions may surprise you. To be surprised by the actions of others is one of the ways we stay alive.
To have that moment of being caught unawares in the presence of 20, 40 or 100 other people who may or may not be as taken aback by you?
There's almost nothing quite so thrilling.
The theatre is one of the few places in life where it's always thrilling to be proved wrong.
