lighting the lights/performing the unconscious

"Considering how dangerous everything is, nothing is really very frightening."
(from the program notes)

I've just come from the rather astonishing performance of Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights (yes, go see it tomorrow night--last chance!). The piece about the production in Bryn Mawr Now emphasizes the fact that it is a valedictory to Goodhart-as-we-know-it. What it DOESN'T mention is what an astonishing representation of the unconscious this play is.

Maybe Allie Mouratis--who is in the ensemble for the play, and a member of our class--can tell us a little next week, about how it feels to (consciously?) perform the unconscious?
