“the glass menagerie” rehearsal, spring 1973, moorhead state university, moorhead, minnesota, directed by dr. delmar hansen.
the gentleman caller (was he named jeff? all i know is that he ended up with my girlfriend, diane fossey — not the gorilla diane fossey — after she and i had gotten “this close ” — gestures with palms facing each other about 3″ apart — to having sex one evening in my dorm room after a kegger off-campus) and laura (i am also “this close” to remembering her name) take notes during rehearsal. i was the properties manager for the show–it’s where i learned to upholster furniture–and this precedes my trip to chicago to audition for the goodman school of drama, but not my decision to leave moorhead as soon as i could.
what does that mean to you? nothing, possibly, or everything is also equally possible. it is definitely a photo of people you don’t know, except that now i’ve made it a part of your day–so there is knowing in that too.
