  • In The Moment  is a short “theatrical comedy” that that seeks to examine the nature of theatre from the perspective of two stage hands who find an audience seated as they begin to work and are compelled to “raise expectation and then realize there is a probable way without doing what’s expected and still keeping what-ever-if-is believable.”

 

  •  

           As the first stagehand explains it:

 

 

. . .  we want to hold their attention – to suspend their

           disbelief – “to strut and fret our hour upon the stage”

      and all that jazz – to do what’s expected of us in an

           unexpected way. You understand? “And leave not a

           rack behind.”  . . .  It’s not brain surgery. It’s not

           rocket science; it’s not even nuclear science, but it has

           consequence. If you see what I’m getting at – “it”, what

           happens, has happened, no – happens, in space like this,

           over time, it has affected an infinitely greater number of

           lives and human understanding than the infinitesimal

          percentage troubled by those other things. Value systems,

          cultures, and successive generations throughout the centuries

          are, have all been, influenced – cognitively and affectively,

          not just once, but over and over, again and again, all the time.

          Always. . . .  Truthful.  Observant. Aware of the possibilities,

          the rubric of "selective inclusions" - references, allusions,

          internal patterns that create implicit meanings which are

          never told, but there.   That's what they want, hunger for,  

          something to speculate about, to trouble over, to try to

          make sense of and apply to life, to guess at what is

          intended as the basis of the stuff, the actions and

          images that are presented . . . and that's the way it

          should be . .  that's showbiz!
