The Gods Weep

The Gods Weep by Dennis Kelly @ Hampstead Theatre. Some thoughts triggered by the play yesterday night:

– the collapse of a personal ‘empire’ makes you re-appreciate the ‘moment’

– being strong -like Colm, beautifully played by Jeremy Irons,- is not about strength

– ‘we’ve been waiting since the birth of the Earth for that exact moment’

– constant pursuit of success and constant state of madness

– nemesis follows? (not sure about that)

I don’t know if the play echoes King Lear -as suggested by some reviews-, not sure  how corporatism, armed conflict and total chaos were synthesised in the second part, but I have the feeling that apocalyptic nemesis (third part of the play) is not always the case.
