It’s Difficult to See the Light…

We knew how to protest, to “fuck the system,” but not what to do! In the earlier issue plays, it was easy. It always is when you’re just reacting or protesting; especially for the children of a declining empire where images and analyses of decadence, fear, and horror are easy to come by. But when you have to be constructive, build, be positive, have a vision, an answer — that’s hard. From where we sit, stuck in our times, it’s difficult to see the light — of how we might live, of joy, of the possibilities within us.

Michael Brown of The Pageant Players, Summer 1971
