Not mine though.
It's Susan Glaspell's comedy I am referring to.
I had the pleasure of interpreting it as a side project ( no study credits involved). I had, prior to this event, read Susan Glaspell's play "Triffles" as well as written a commentary on it. Quite a powerful piece albeit simple in presentation.
Anyhows, me and Molly represented two sisters in the play (Henrietta and Mabel). Not present at the picture, the third character of the play mister Brewster (part of the jigsaw as well as of the solution). It's a really funny piece about the pseudo-intellectual beliefs, modernism and overall the "new rights of passage" that a trip to a psychoanalyst's coach had become.
The setting: 1944 in New York. The shock of war has worn off. Freud and Jung are in. Everybody that is somebody has an intellectual calling. No conversation is complete without the mention of a complex or a dream. New words are attractive...ego, superego, libido....
Yes, indeed. It was a fun project. Seeing this picture reminded me of it.
