I remember seeing a play in Bucharest called The shape of things. They even made a movie after the play but I don’t really know anything about the author (nor the movie, haven’t seen it). The only things I can tell you are that I loved it and that there’s one particular quote that I remember. I don’t know it by heart but I will paraphrase: Art is the only subject in which two persons can have two completely different opinions but they can be both right at the same time.
Yesterday I went to see the play entitled Answer me, the one that I mentioned before. Watching it reminded me the previous quote. It made me feel that someone could say this play was amazing while another person could think this sucked and they could both be right at the same time… I don’t know which person I would agree with. Probably I would be somewhere in between.
There were some things I liked about the play, in particular the end of it: a woman’s monologue about… us. Us as human beings. And one thing she said will stick in my mind: We don’t know what we don’t know.
I think one of the points of the whole play was to make you think. Think about yourself, about who you are, what you want, what are your ideals or… do you even have any?
Do you know how to answer that?
