About this deal
But as the professor of psychology at Georgia Gwinnett College, David Ludden, Ph.D., points out, secrets can be psychologically damaging because the secret-holder has no opportunity to discuss their contents with other people. When we have problems, it helps to share them with someone who can provide us with insight on how to deal with them. But when it comes to secrets that are highly immoral, we feel shame and are reluctant to share them. (Often for good reason, as well.)
Few playwrights can shake the stage like Lynn Nottage. The reverberations are even stronger when her work is directed by Lynette Linton. Five years ago, the pair created one of the most important productions of the last decade: Sweat was a tremendous capturing of life in post-industrial rust-belt America. upvotes Follow Unfollow 1 year ago Dots Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017Maybe you committed a petty crime and got away with it. Maybe you had a regrettable one-night stand. Or maybe it's not that extreme. For example, some people hide their political and religious views, especially when they believe no one else will agree with them. Some do not reveal their finances too, whether they have a lot more or a lot less than others think.
Remember slow cooking? There is also slow theatre. Four years ago, in Faith, Hope and Charity, Alexander Zeldin delivered a minutely focused, gradually unfolding study of the brutal effects of austerity. Now, in bringing autofiction to the stage, he aims to show that “ the ordinary is extraordinary”. The Confessions, which Zeldin also directs, is the story of one woman’s life, based in part on conversations with his mother. The result is absorbing, an immersion in detail that has something in common with the work of the American dramatist Annie Baker: it is as if you are seeing all the individual pixels in a photograph. upvotes Follow Unfollow 1 year ago (edited) Dots Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017 In this play of many selves, most of the cast take on several roles, with exceptional dexterity. Norvill is extraordinary throughout. Unguarded, apparently skinless, she talks at first in high-pitched, hiccupping phrases; as her confidence grows, her speech takes on a new flow. An air of project hovers over the evening, yet its candour is rare. So is its sense of inwardness. Confession is not only a matter of speech, but of sensation. Josh Anio Grigg’s sound design ensures that the audience hear the scrape of a plate across a table; when someone says shush in a library the sound crashes like a waterfall.Nottage wires me more deeply into American life than Arthur Miller ever has. Clyde’s is not as mighty as Sweat – the play doesn’t altogether avoid the sentimentality at which it laughs. Yet it is always vital; there is not a single limp moment. Linton’s direction lifts the drama to another level, making it one of the best evenings in the stalls I’ve had this year. Anyway, Rob and Chris continued with their conversation, and they "got to talk about how semi-anonymity through obscurity was a good thing in many ways."
