play was a really short, really weird play (in the style of the Theatre
of Cruelty... so yeah, just that in and of itself is weird). Look
up the play sometime and read it. It's weird. I'd like to see it performed,
Report: Jet of Blood
a.Time: I wasnt able to infer the date, but I think it was supposed
to be the 18 or 1900s
b. Place: Outside. I am not sure in what country or town. But it is
in the streets of some town. Probably a French town.
c. A man and a woman are telling eachother how much they love eachother.
a. A man and woman tell eachother how much they love eachother, and
how perfect it is, but then their need to seek *more* perfection seems
to make them want to stir things up.
b. The knight and the nurse talk about the man and woman and how terrible
it is that they are screwing eachother.
c. Gods hand comes down and scoops up a whore and shows everyone
her ugly body. The whore bites Gods hand and blood spurts out.
d. The woman (from the first scene) dies, and the whore and the young
man are left with eachother.
e. The nurse raises up her dress and a crowd of scorpians comes out
and they assault the knight. The young woman wakes up and comes to
the realization The virgin! Ah, thats what he was looking
a. Im not at all sure. The young man and woman are both likely
b. Im not sure. The knight, and young man are both candidates.
c. Major characters are the nurse, the young man and the whore.
d. The minor character was God.
e. The various animals that wandered the set.
a. I have no idea. Perhaps it is something about the ambiguities of
life and, at least partially, the need for human pefection.
b. Again, perhaps it has to do with ambiguities.
Personal Reaction and Critique
a. I think reading the script was more enjoyable than actually reaching
the end. At least when I was reading it I wasnt expecting anything
that came next but the end left me with a feeling of huh?.
b. Not a lot of the play made sense, and the characters, I think,
were more representatives of different facets of human nature, but
I cant at all be sure about that. The play as a whole didnt
make sense, but probably because Im not good at interpreting
things like this, and also it might help if someone could give me
some starting points for figuring out what it was about.
