Thomas Lynch insists over and over in his meditation on death: “the dead don’t care.”
Theater director Peter Halasz is dying. He plans to spend Monday in a coffin in a Budapest museum while his friends and family (and interested museum-going bystanders) will be able to walk by the coffin, view the body, and say whatever they are moved to say. Halasz says he is curious to know what kind of theater his own funeral will make. Drama, he writes "is when we recognize and confront our common fate."
