Going back to my high school days, I saw a play one time called The Day of Absence that made a real impression on me. The premise of the play is a day back in the 1960’s when all of the help, the maids and cooks, disappeared from the white community, and then the white people didn’t know how to act or do anything by themselves. And I think that play can be a metaphor for the whole idea of being in society without the arts. Without the arts, there is so much we would be missing.
