A note from the director:

Hope, like faith, is nothing if it is not courageous; it is nothing if it is not ridiculous.
- Thornton Wilder

This is very much a play of big ideas. How does trouble within the family mirror disaster without? How do great works affect those who don't even know of their existence? Have you milked the mammoth?

The question that has been answered for me during rehearsals and runs is perhaps the biggest question of them all: why do this (or any) play? Or, more broadly, why go on living? Certainly in the play every action, word and choice has been decided, and some say the same is true of life. What comes out very definitely in the work, however, is more than anything else a hope. Whether or not our path has been chosen, it is the trying, it is the struggle that matters.

But then again, who am I to say? It'll all be forgotten in a hundred years.

- Daniel Rogers
