And here is a sample post, written by Peter Duncanson:
My name is Peter Duncanson. I get to play John Proctor. Recently I have been grappling with the idea of freedom. I have become keenly aware of the chains that bind us in today’s culture. Cages of the mind that are laid pole by pole as we grow up until we are all grown up and find that cage comfortable. At least some of us do. We find ourselves in places, occupations, and relationships that don’t fit. These are the foundations we base our belief systems on, influenced by culture, religion, friends, and family as well as the need to survive. We learn make choices that hold survival at the pinnacle of virtue.
Because of this, the character John Proctor resonates deeply with me. I see him as a man who has a fierce darkness and filled with passion, both good and evil. Trapped in a culture that he has come to see as nothing but a cage. It is as if both his defeats and victories tear at his heart pulling in opposite directions. Yet a part of him is acutely sensible and clear. It is this earnest sense of morality he has come to find that has no place in the culture in which he resides. Let the journey begin!
