Order 'Putting [the John Locke quote at the beginning of THE AMERICA PLAY] and also in the program notes may encourage people to think about the idea of America in addition to the actual day-to-day reality of America. 'In the beginning all the world was America.' All the world was an uncharted place, a blank slate, and since that beginning everyone's been filling it with tshatshkes, which we who come next receive and must do something with.'

-- Suzan-Lori Parks
