tanka (we toil like Macbeth)

by Joan E.

we toil like Macbeth
our witches brewing trouble
time to second-guess
find positives in life
build on past successes




I am attending plays in Ashland Oregon, and so far I found the Macbeth performance masterful, although some audience members thought it too bloody. Not so with Alice in Wonderland, which I felt lost the theme of curiousity, with too much reliance on technical effects. It is an adaptation of Lewis Carrollâ??s original Wonderland and. Through the Looking Glass. Hereâ??s to the Festival!
