Without Dragons what would be left for heroes to do?
24 May 2004 | by blu-12See all my reviews

Horton Foote again reaches into the hearts and minds of viewers who are open to the understanding of what should be the priorities of a good life such as forgiveness and love of each other. To rate our love of people higher than money and things may not always be easy, but where would the drama be in "easy?" Moreover, love that requires self-sacrifice is so important to experience. This play illustrates that drama as well. To sacrifice our time for love may be a spiritual activity; sitting with someone while they sleep, so that person CAN sleep, illuminates such a sacrifice. But, forgiveness! Forgiveness! This play is a celebration of forgiveness, something we all need.
