An Extra in Bartholomew Fair

I’m about to head upstairs to play the Puritan for my office mate’s surprise classroom production of Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair. Typecasting? Probably. No matter; one has to love a play in which a Puritan loses a theological debate to a puppet, even if one doesn’t entirely dislike Puritans.

I’m looking forward to digging back into Republic with my classes. These conferences have been valuable, I think, but Plato is just more fun. I think we’re coming up on the wives and children passage–if they don’t get riled about that, they’re just not reading.
