As I prepare for my latest high school production, (Romeo and Juliet), I am very aware of the following quotes, courtesy of Margaret Atwood in her latest, Hag-Seed, about a vengeful behind bars production of The Tempest (which I will be teaching soon- albeit not behind bars). True of any production, including high school…..

“Watching the many faces watching their own faces as they pretended to be someone else- Felix found it strangely moving. For once in their lives, they loved themselves.” (58)

and

“It still astonishes Felix the way everyone wants to get in on the act, once there is an act.” (76)
