Plays

Maria Jandyra Cunha

Abstract


In spite of presenting his drama in a completely inovating
way, Richard Morris writes about the same Universal themes that have been worrying his companion playwriters:life and death, love and war. He uses archetypes which are very well known in Literature such as "Time's winged chariot", the ostrich, the drunkard, the dog, and many others.
Morris dresses his plot with a modern gown by hinting
fairly new issues (doping, John Lennon - Ioko Ono television,
Volkswagen, poor people's rights, women's rights) and yet he
expresses a longing for bygone days or, at least, he is a eulo
gizer of the past "our time".
