The Clay Cart


Another day, another matinee. This one was a nice adaptation of an ancient northern Indian (that's Indian Indian, pardner) epic play, The Clay Cart. The name is kind of like calling WWII the battle of Stalingrad, but it seems to go well with the alternating serious and joking around the play does. Or maybe it is the modern adaptation? They are usually pretty serious about getting the meaning and much of the words out there for the audience to decide. In fact, they never change the words for the Shakespearean plays, though they may cut a whole scene. I guess The Clay Cart treated seriously the dumb things we do that should be laughed at, and not so seriously the really serious things. The players, of course, made it worth staying for 3 hours.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
