It's quite rare that anything I might have to say would be
time-sensitive but this certainly is.

The National Theatre occasionally films their stage productions and
provides them for free on Youtube. One of their latest productions is
Death of England: Delroy.

It tells the story of a good man on a bad day. It's a one-man play with
a riveting, high-wire performance from Michael Balogun. The lighting and
sound design start simple and become perfect companions to Balogun's
unraveling Delroy. It's stunning.

This makes me want to be back in a theater either in a seat or on the
stage. The fearlessness and vulnerability of a performance like this is
intoxicating.
