To understand Noises Off it helps to know Murphy’s Law and O’Toole’s Commentary on Murphy’s Law aka O’Toole’s Corollary. Murphy’s Law says if anything can go wrong, it will. O’Toole’s Corollary says Murphy was an optimist. And if the purpose of theater is to hold a mirror up to ourselves so we can see clearly who and what we are then Noises Off tells us we are all doomed.

Elwood P. Dowd is certifiably insane but not by happenstance. He is that way by choice. It’s the only way he can cope with an insane world. Sane people act insane in an insane world. Dowd did that for 40 years but gave it up for a sane world of his own creation. As he tells us, “…I wrestled with reality for forty years, and I am happy to state that I finally won out over it.” And in Dowd’s reality one must be “…so smart…or so pleasant. For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.” He is the most pleasant person imaginable.

For 33 years people have been converging on the Black Rock Desert to celebrate the Burning Man festival. Part of that ritual for many of these Burners is picking up supplies for this week-long event at Walmart. Yesterday I went to a Walmart in Reno, as I have done for many years now. Thier I meet some of these diverse and vibrant people, who were on their way to join the tens of thousands of their fellow burners in the Black Rock Desert just a few hours from Reno, NV.
Here is a video of some of my encounters.
