Trinity Rep – Some Things Are Private (2/15-3/23)
Saw the pre-preview of this tonight. Amazing show, as always. Trinity can do no bad in my mind; even if the content of the show is not of my taste, the performances always make it worth it. This show was both: content and performance. I loved the open-endedness of the discussion; clearly, the writer was biased toward Sally Mann, but did not shy away from a balanced dialogue that acknowledged the complexities of the many issues surrounding her story. There are so many things in life I’m on the fence about; this play made me not feel the need to necessarily jump off onto one side or another; not that I didn’t ultimately (jump off), but I was not pressured by that whole silly dichotomous black-or-white right-or-wrong pick-a-side bullshit our culture loves.
