useful to remember?

...from an Interview about ABRAHAM


"I've written more than twenty plays, all about things I care about, but this is the one that feels to me the most essential, a play that had to be written, we need it so.  In this terrifying time, our world is smaller and smaller, and rife with hatreds, so many growing from a profound lack of understanding of, and empathy for, 'the other.'   A tale that reminds us how to love our enemy is useful.

"One essential, though, is that people will come up to me and say 'This is about more than it's about,' and I say 'Yes. I think it's about saving ourselves - that is, to go so deep into the heart of our enemy that we have no choice but to embrace him, and, in that embrace, is the answer to everything.'"
