PLANS FOR THE THEATRE OF SELF

LIST OF CHARACTERS

YOU- AS YOURSELF

EVERYONE ELSE- PLAYED BY YOU

act 1

you take centre stage
i don’t know where you take it-
that really doesn’t matter

act as you yourself would
if the spotlights weren’t on you

you probably don’t recognise that person
or like them
or dislike them

the words might ring hollow
or true
or familiar
it makes no difference
that really doesn’t matter

act finished
you take a bow
you may take it wherever you like

act 2

you’ve now left the stage
i’m not sure exactly where you left it

you are all the men and women
merely a player

you write
direct
and critique
the whole damn show
perhaps you are also the audience
look
tell me
what do you see?

you can be anyone you please
except yourself
just like any other actor
in any other play

act 3

act 3 hasn’t been written yet
you could say it’s being written as you read it
you could say anything you wanted
it makes no difference

as you sit
or stand
or whatever you are doing
there

observe yourself
and everything around you

self
self
self
or selves if you prefer

welcome to the theatre
farewell

don’t come back
we hope you enjoyed your visit
