    This script is so great! The language is masterful. It hooked me from the first scene with the pirates. I love the use of multiple choruses and how Tang leaves open exactly who is talking when. The possibilities! And the ways it all could be staged! Definitely a play I want to see! Reading it left me inspired - thinking of the economy, art, and death.
