Kickass goes to a play


Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports the keeper’s reaction of awe to a recent APT performance of Tennessee Williams’ “A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur.”  As a one-time playwright—“Naked At Amazo,” the keeper has great respect for the blending of words and actions exercised by Williams over his long career of writing sensational stage and screen works.  It moved the keeper to do a bit of research and learn that Williams died in 1983 in a NY hotel room, alone and surrounded by wine bottles and pills at the age of 72.  Among his quotations is, “If I got rid of my demons I’d lose my angels.”  The keeper, being older than 72, is motivated to access his demons and maybe take a stab at revising “Naked At Amazo.” He plans to start by sharing a bottle of Chianti with his angel Phyllis and friends Helen and Harry.
