THEATRE AS HEALING
With a plot that includes one man’s plan to harm the Pope, Wake Forest University Theatre’s next performance, “The House of Blue Leaves,” takes on a more timely meaning following the Sept. 11 attacks on America. John Friedenberg, director of Wake Forest Theatre, says the play, like all theatre, can be a catalyst for healing. “Pain and humor juxtaposed can bring us to look at surrounding events in fresh ways,” Friedenberg says. “Theatre, because it is a group experience, can guide, reinforce and ease that process.” Friedenberg can discuss how theatre can help the healing process following the recent tragedies.
