My questions are for new Theatre Blog and/or Anatoly XXI (pomo writing)

Stoppard'08 : R/G are Dead HamletDreams : WebShow pages, 12th Night directory ... Godot could be a place for Shakespeare who went through test by Beckett.

There are no clouds in heaven or hell. We were told.

No moon.

"Magic Hour" (between day and night): act one, act two...

Why not three acts? Or four? Five-act tragedy...


I expected that show wouldn't be liked. The play was written to challenge "liking" and "entertainment".

The thought could be trivial -- oh, life is boring -- and this is where the entertainment comes to rescue, the fantasy. Fairy-tales were around from the beging of times.

So, what's the point?
