Whew! Tuesday was exciting. We took a much deeper dive into Act 1, Scene 2 of The Tempest (with some Caliban this time).

Malcolm Gets quotes Jack O'Brien

Malcolm channels Jack O’Brien as the company grapples with scansion and humanity

So much laughter, so much great work, so many discussion, about …

    • Exposition
    • Jack O’Brien
    • Tempest lovers vs other Shakespeare lovers
    • The Tempests position in the Canon
    • What is our relationship to scansion vs portraying human truth (with Kate Foy in Australia chiming in: “I think Prospero, in recalling the perfidy of his brother, reveals his passion – the disjointedness of thought is still bound by the rhythmic structure.”

and of course text, text, text, character, character, character, circumstances, circumstances, circumstances.
