The Sound of the Crowd

Context, Song Styles, and PS

Context:

“Dear Playwright:

On behalf of the Artistic Committee’s playreading judges, we would like to thank you for submitting your full-length play to our annual contest. Unfortunately…”

Song Styles:

And the fear goes on…shadows

And the tear flows on for nothing

Under his nose was a dream come true

Been there all the time and he almost knew

Thoughts of people in misfortune stopped him doing things well

His duty was to use it – left his pearl in the shell

And the fear goes on…shadows

And the tear flows on…

And on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on…

–Howard Jones, “Pearl in The Shell”

PS:

“Dear Playwright.” Not even “Mr. Varkentine.”
