We have been warned. Their playground, populated by the loathsome bullies we all remember, is the triangular performance space piano at its apex, complete with one of the school nerds playing; Michael Bell at the piano , and it is thoughtfully used to mirror the victimisation triangle of 2 ganging up on one. Adults, of course, should know better than to persecute the innocent, the weak and the different. But are Ian, the bookkeeper and Myra, the secretary so different from the millions of other bookkeepers and secretaries who, closer to home, listen to Alan Jones, vote for John Howard, and hate their neighbours? It is the evil side to their banality that we need to worry about. At one intriguing moment of the performance, peering deep into their music scores, Ian and Myra perceive the images of their victims. And so too, during this performance, are we uncomfortably reminded of the ugly hearts of glorious cultures that produce Berg and Hitler, Purcell and Brady. And this is further subtly reiterated in performance: it is no innocent gesture for Anggerek in his school uniform to quietly read his Tintin book on stage.

She is considered "an old maid" by Mormon standards, so she may be willing to marry you--hoping you will convert someday --but she will constantly be reminded that your marriage is inferior to the "Eternal Families" of sealed Mormons, and she will fear dying and never seeing her loved ones again.
Though I am yet to see if we would make it. You will join the church. I work in a different industry and have worked away from home my fair share. You know what the official line of the church is, and what bishops and stake presidents are likely to say. At best they just try to include you in the community, and at worst you are constantly told that you'll be welcome "when you're ready. To Anonymous, Your comment also left me heartbroken. But actions speak louder than words. Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. I wouldn't end a relationship with her, just as I wouldn't deny someone a job, or refuse to socialize with someone who is a Mormon.
