Life of a Playwright
Two Way Mirror
I think I had to read and/or watch Death of a Salesman and The Crucible each at least four times in high school and twice in college. As with other dynamic pieces of literature, each story's depth and value was lost on my 16-year-old brain when forced to read them. A college acting class and Dustin Hoffman helped me see not only how interesting Arthur Miller was as a writer, but also as a person. In 1982, Miller published Two Way Mirror, a series of semi-autobiographical one-act plays depicting the events of his marriage to the legendary Marilyn Monroe. Starting tonight and running through the 20th, the Southwest Rural Theatre Project will present the series, made up of two parts—Elegy for a Lady and Some Kind of Love Story. The couple, often referred to as "The Egghead and The Hourglass," were married less than 5 years, but their story is jam-packed with intrigue, scandal and, eventually, divorce.
