Awright... as the heading goes. Whew... that was one hell of a rush job and Parrots' Lies is now thankfully past me...us! Am not downright proud of this production. Let me hurt you with my frankness. Well, I like the script and all, but... 1) Playing it before a gutless audience that never reacts (even the last time) and 2) Playing with actors with whom I would prefer to spend 3 months on this script than the measly shameless 20 days... it leaves a very uncomfortable feeling somehow to even know that there exists a yawning gap between what it could have been and what it became... where I would want it to be and where it ended up! Nevertheless... AIN'T THERE NO FECKIN' PROACTIVE AUDIENCE THAT IS GONNA GET OFFENDED WHEN THEY ARE ILLTREATED? I am not doing an S&B show here... this is fecking theatre man... and we have insulted you all for 5 fecking shows... so please fight back! Am so hurt... only 7 people walked out disgusted and for the wrong reasons. They came in knowing there are expletives and left because the expletives repulsed them! I mean, if they felt hurt because they are being insulted, I would have understood and respected them. But fish! Anyways...
UP NEXT... FINALLY...
