A Sandcastle in the Sky
Albert Powell, Theatre of the People [TOP], Bloomington, IN
Speaking in point-counterpoint, a succession of "authorities" is at odds with "the situation" of Miss Jane and Mr. Joe, who is "trespassing." Is it legalese gobbledygook about property lines, which one "owns" and "owned" and what's at stake? Or, is it a serious matter of principles/principals clashing in this commedia del arte take on current events that have been current since creation? Colonialism becomes a way of life in the hands of four skilled actors traversing universal territory in a very private "situation." Edgy.
