Tea and Sympathy

Set at a boys' boarding school in New Hampshire in the early s, the play concerns the harassment of a young man who is perceived to be gay.

Of course, this being the pre-Stonewall era, that specific term is never used; instead, Tom Lee Dan McCabe is described as "queer," a "fairy," and an "off-horse. What makes the play relevant is that such fear and loathing still exists among our country's most willfully ignorant citizens including some politicians. When Tom's schoolmates freak out at the thought of showering with a known homosexual, present-day audiences are bound to think of the gay panic that resulted in promulgation of the U.

And there can be little doubt that many homophobes still equate artistic talent with femininity while believing that a young man's prowess on the athletic field is a sure sign of his heterosexuality. If this sort of foolishness persists in -- and it does -- we should hardly roll our eyes when we hear it expressed by characters in a play that bowed on Broadway in Tea and Sympathy is dated in a negative sense only insofar as Anderson took the easy way out in presenting Tom as wrongly accused that's the appropriate word here of being gay.

As the action unfolds, we can't help wishing that one or more of the characters would say, "So what if the kid is homosexual? There's nothing wrong with that. At any rate, the play was written primarily as a veiled attack against the communist witch-hunts of the McCarthy era, though it works on both the literal and figurative levels. The gangly McCabe is a terrific Tom, communicating the character's awkwardness and torment as well as his poetic soul.

It helps that he actually looks 17; the character can seem laughable if assigned to an actor who has clearly left adolescence far behind. As Laura Reynolds, the housemaster's wife who selflessly sleeps with Tom in order to prove that he's not gay!!! Craig Mathers is excellent as Laura's husband Bill, one of those "regular guys" whose open digust for "fairys" is a symptom of his own self-loathing. Laura asks him, "Did it ever occur to you that you persecute in Tom Harris, the teacher who unwittingly sets Tom's troubles in motion.

There are some questionable choices by director Jonathan Silverstein, including an odd lightness of touch in certain scenes of mounting tension. This may have been done on purpose so that the script wouldn't play as one long downer, and the company is successful in avoiding that trap.

Indeed, the only major problem with the production is the scenic design of Beowulf Boritt and Jo Winiarski; the section of the playing area that represents Tom's room is so tiny that the actors have great difficulty jockeying for position on it, and some of the set decorations are ill chosen. Why do both Tom and Laura have old-style gramophones in their rooms?

Can't they afford s hi-fi? A gem doesn't have to be flawless to be valuable. For the reasons noted above, productions of Tea and Sympathy are as rare as enlightened remarks from Ann Coulter, so the Keen Company should be commended for unearthing this fascinating time capsule and making such a strong case for it.

 Это вы убили Танкадо. Стратмор вздрогнул и замотал головой: - Конечно. Убивать Танкадо не было необходимости. Честно говоря, я бы предпочел, чтобы он остался жив. Его смерть бросает на Цифровую крепость тень подозрения.

 - У вас, часом, нет такой же под рукой. - Не в этом дело! - воскликнула Сьюзан, внезапно оживившись. Это как раз было ее специальностью.  - Дело в том, что это и есть ключ. Энсей Танкадо дразнит нас, заставляя искать ключ в считанные минуты.

 И что же это за секрет. - Вы отлично знаете это. Это Цифровая крепость. - Вот как? - снисходительно произнес Стратмор холодным как лед голосом.

 Сьюзан, появление Цифровой крепости влечет за собой очень серьезные последствия для всего будущего нашего агентства.

Она судорожно ловила ртом воздух, извиваясь в руках Хейла. Он хотел было отпустить ее и броситься к лифту Стратмора, но это было бы чистым безумием: все равно он не знает кода. Кроме того, оказавшись на улице без заложницы, он обречен.

 - Скажи, что он нашел кольцо. Но коммандер поймал ее взгляд и нахмурился. Значит, это не Дэвид.

 Хорошо. Полагаю, вы получили обе копии ключа.

 - Надо думать. Есть различие, которое мы все время упускаем. Что-то очень простое.

 Жила. - Да. Кошачья жила.
