Front-Pagers Get Faces, and Voices

5

When you've gotten to know people strictly through cyber networks, it's always refreshing to see them in person. For me, the encounter occurred at a presentation of Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. T&C is a play about the Trojan Wars. The OSF has placed the action in modern-day Baghdad. From Shakespeare's original castings, the Greeks become American GIs and the Trojans are Iraqi soldiers. So, our fearless BN leaders were decked out in desert-storm camo garb. It was rather handy, really, in that the GIs had nametags on their breast pockets--almost like players' names on the backs of jerseys. Anyway, it was my good fortune to "meet" from the third row several BN illuminaries, including Ajax, Nestor, Patroclus, Achilles, and Menelaus. Frankly, I don't know how you guys contribute so much to BN, what with rehearsals and all.
