2/7/14, Day 13,792: The Unlikely Ascent of Sybil Stevens
This day is so named for the production of Kari Bentley-Quinn’s play, featuring the fine work of many friends and running for the next two weeks. I think what I connected with most is that for a play about rapid ascents and descents, it’s central character is compellingly grounded in who she is, and while she is knocked off her balance by the turbulence of events, she never loses her feet. It is difficult to write about goodness, especially when that goodness isn’t the flashy variety, but the goodness that comes from reading the compass of your heart clearly and acting decently to others, day after day. Sybil Stevens is a hero, but not for the reasons that the media in the play promote. Congratulations and thank you to the cast and creative team for an enjoyable night at the theatre!
