Re: “In Arthur Miller's update of Ibsen, a whistleblower's righteous zeal also accounts for his flaws

I found it an excellent production and enjoyed what Mr Quaintance brought to the table, including the quirky strobe and slo-mo gestures that evoked the McCarthy hearings, and the unexpected hurling of polluted water in the faces of the Stockmans. But like you I suddenly realized that the play has the shape of tragedy after all--that the hero for all his greatness is terminally arrogant and goes far to bring on his own fall. I suppose the problem is endemic to all whistleblowers. What shall history do with Snowden?

Re: “Clint Eastwood's biopic of a deadly American Sniper downplays the unsavory details of Chris Kyle's life

Your point about Kyle's inability to understand the larger ethical context or the almost chthonic forces that drive him rings true. I've read the book (which is awfully written) and will probably see the movie; thank you for the on-ramp.

Re: “Playwright Daniel Karasik's drama The Innocents strives to make its case

I'd love to see some English-language theater out of Africa in the Triangle. On a related note, the BBC's annual radio drama competition draws entrants (and usually winners) from regions that commingle a rich mix of indigenous performance tradition with a firsthand experience of colonialism and contemporary "European" theatrical sensibility.
