But of course, the Theatre won't let me alone, and I'm right back on the horse with Lulu: A Monster Tragedy by Frank Wedekind, German expressionist extraordinaire, translated by theatre artists fabulaire Edward and Elizabeth Bond. This is, as my director has put it, a satirical look at the outcome of unfettered capitalism. As Edward puts it "Money plus Sex = Violence". And that gives us Wedekind's Jack the Ripper. A consummer as well as a capitalist, taking and selling (at the ultimate expense of others) objectified female sexuality. As an object. Disgusting, but that's where we are today. A very timely piece that I am very excited to start work on. I need a little breather from my own writing and am so glad it's THIS!!
