Questions, mostly, that have been haunting me:
Whose lights are these?
If all the objects' lives are determined by the characters' desires, where are OUR desires? Do we get any? Where is the boundary? Is there one? Did Tom hang the lights? Did he pick this room to conjure his memories? Do we, the makers, own nothing? Does EVERYTHING belong to the characters' desires, down to the seats in the theatre? Have we set up anything for them? Does anything belong to us? IS THERE A BOUNDARY?
Do light tricks, Tangible Magic, belong to THEM as well?
Are THEY, the characters, in charge of the SM?
Who makes the storm?
Who cuts the power?
Is that us? Who are we? Are we pretending there is no us?
Are lights objects for the characters to manipulate?
If so, is this the moon:
Does Laura turn the light onto her glass menagerie?
Does Amanda light up her own dress?
Do the characters get surprised? By anything? Is there something they thought they controlled that they actually don't?
I crave non-slick magic tricks.
