Theatricals can be irritating, but will provide a better night out than mobile phone salespeople.
There is a thin line between politics and theatricals.
I had a toy theater and a magic lantern, and when I was eight I built a stage for theatricals in the attic.
I was going to be an architect. I graduated with a degree in architecture and I had a scholarship to go back to Princeton and get my Masters in architecture. I'd done theatricals in college, but I'd done them because it was fun.
If this life is not a real fight, in which something is eternally gained for the universe by success, it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which one may withdraw at will. But it feels like a real fight.
