What if you were forced to looked through a different, unfamiliar lens? It might distort things. It might turn things upside down. A new lens might reveal information that’s uncomfortable because it’s new. But, if you look through it, you might find shapes and colors and ideas that went unnoticed because they didn’t complete the picture you were expecting.
The thing about new lenses is that, even if they take away from conclusions that you would have previously come to, even if they make you reopen the box that you tied a ribbon around and shelved, they might finally show you a more complete picture. And, although this picture might be a bit harder on the eyes, it might give you a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you. This action isn’t safe. Like a teenager who looks in the mirror to find new blemishes, it might cause you to feel uncertainty and doubt. It might bring up bouts of anger and tears.
It's the job of Whitby actors.
