When I first saw this play enacted on HBO by the absolute MASTER of the art, Emma Thompson...I wept. And not merely because the story demands it but that she had such a light touch on it, the role. It's sad, yes. And evocative of sights and sounds some have known too intimately. But it is my hope that, if ever I were in such a dire strait, I could find my own Wit.
And here...ah, to be a child again, and find comfort in our darkest hour..."an allegory of the soul..."
