in high school

I took a test with the question "what's the greatest American play?"  we'd been taught that the answer was "Our Town."  so that's what I put down.  I didn't believe it then & still don't.

however there's a production here which features a cast of local theater heavyweights.  so I sat thru another interpretation of this dreary play.  there were some good performances but I don't need to ever see this again.

I remember another question on the same test: "Who is the greatest American playwright?" & again I lied. I gave the answer I knew the teacher wantd -- Eugene O'Neill -- instead of my choice -- Tennessee Williams.

so much for public education...
