Spontaneity-- following a brief conversation I had in 2008 with a small businessman I'd met by chance in a hotel bar. He was struggling for solvency.

I recall a brilliant performance by Billie Whitelaw in Samuel Beckit's “Not I” described as one of the most disturbing images in theatre: a disembodied mouth, telling its tale “at the speed of thought.” Amazing what sticks in the mind. :smile:

Seemed a rant from someone ready to go off. Good person to keep some distance from--like maybe a different bar. Made me think of myself, at times. I like experimental work. Thanks. Paco
