101 in 1001: See a play

Man of Valor Interview

I saw this play about a month ago. My aunt won tickets and gave them to me and since I couldn’t find anyone to go with, I went alone to the Limetree Theatre, not knowing what to expect.

Man of Valor is a one man, prop free show and it was mindblowing, emotional, and beautifully done. I came out of that theatre with all of the emotions. It was dark with blips of hope, present and unextraordinary juxtaposed against memories and fantasies.

The play follows the life of Farrell Blinks as he finds out about the death of his father and fights his demons as he lives his life. I never cry when I watch a movie. I made awkward jokes during the Notebook. But this burned and stung in all the ways that theatre should.
