In the dismal days of late winter, as we enter the second year of pandemic-induced distancing and lockdowns, I’d like to introduce a theme that may provide a welcome counter-impulse and help us to look forward to the days when we can gather once more. As theatres around the world have been closed or severely limited in their ability to present live performances, we can still celebrate the joys of the stage in our reading and blogging lives.
Therefore I’m declaring March a month for “Reading the Theatre” here at Entering the Enchanted Castle, and I hope that others will be inspired to join. If anyone wishes to contribute a guest post, please let me know (email me at lory [at] enterenchanted [dot] com). Topics that could be explored are reviews of plays or play collections, reviews or reminiscences of live performances, books about the theatre (fiction and nonfiction), experiences of being in plays, thoughts about reading plays (a distinct art in itself), and whatever else inspires you.
I’ll be posting my own thoughts on some of these during the month, and looking forward to whatever you may come up with.
Will you join me in “Reading the Theatre”? What topics or themes most interest you?
