Here we are, a few weeks from when the festival ended, and here I am, posting something I wrote the night I saw ENGLAND.

I wrote this emphatically, quickly, passionately, immediately. Hopefully it will capture the show using a little bit of the same kind of syntax that Crouch wrote into the show.

Tim Crouch and Hannah
just bring so much to TBA with their
beliefs of real
they don't build sets though they
convey some "acting" despite
his profession of not liking acting
Look! Look!
Look.
There's something about this show that wouldn't let me leave, that
made me believe, that said
Look!
You must say thank you,
say thank you
for a show that tells
a story but doesn't fill
it
all
in.
Look.
Look.
a favorite part of this festival
is how it brings one to
parts of the city that are
so beautiful
and that i may have never seen
otherwise
Look.
Look.
