More about the play


  1. I'm sorry to be the first to comment, and that this first comment is largely negative. This did not work for me because
    1. The resonance of the building made it very difficult to hear any of the dialogue. I missed most of it.
    2. I was not able to connect at all with Dan & the doctor. I could not relate them either to Dante or to Therese. That device seemed to me a clumsy and unnecessary distraction.

    BUT, having said that, and having left the church very disappointed, I woke up next morning with the sound of those glorious children's voices from Part 1 filling my whole being with intense joy; and with the almost unbearable mixture of terrible sorrow and deep joy at the parting of Therese from her wonderful father impressing upon me more vividly than ever the reality of our separateness and separations, and that, in Christ, they are not the last word.
    Praise be!

  2. It's too bad that I missed the play.. When will it be held again this year?
