A Guide To What's Here: Working
'Sometimes I'm sorry I ever came across the magic realism label. I just think of it as an interesting approach to theatre . . . an extra tool in the box, an incredibly effective and poetic method of accessing a character, of getting at the truth. . . . If you choose the details of everyday life carefully enough, and examine them with enough clarity, they can seem magical on their own. Like Garcia Márquez says, the human condition is so absurd, and people are so outrageous, that insane things happen on a daily basis. All you really have to do is record them.'
-- José Rivera
