Cul-de-sac - Daniel MacIvor, Daniel Brooks I don't think I've read a single play since my theatre classes in college, but it all came back to me - analyzing parts, coming up with different readings for the same line, imagining what this play must have looked like on stage.I bet it was interesting. A one man show, Cul-de-sac slowly takes you through a series of character studies of people who all live on the same dead end street. They're all talking, more or less directly, about an event that happened recently. I'll just leave it there to avoid spoiling anything.There are some downright beautiful lines and interesting insights sprinkled throughout. One of my favorites, from a 14 year old girl:"I wish I could be a lesbian. It would be easier. Girls are easier. I mean girls can be bitchy but so can boys just when boys are bitchy they call it highly motivated."A short read even with the lengthy introduction, this play reminded me that there's a whole world of drama out there waiting for me.
