The Danube (written by María Irene Fornés)
Written in 1982 in response to looming political and environmental disaster, I was drawn to María Irene Fornés' script for its form and captivated by its turns of phrase, deceptive humour, and depressingly fitting themes of ordinary action in the face of total destruction.
