And another thing!

To clarify re: Riot Group:

1. Yes, I did admire/envy them as a model for a group structure. They’re four (five?) people who have worked out a way to work together repeatedly–with a writer, performers, designers, everyone performing their roles, making new plays. I would kill for my best collaborators to be in the same location as I so we could do that.

2. The piece gained some success initially in England, where the desire for a satire of America will easily overwhelm any concerns of its accuracy or veracity. Additionally, relieving non-American audiences of looking at their own militaristic/paternalistic power structures critically.
