Actually concerning "Bengal", I thought Williams turned in a fine performance, and the Turkish Translator was great, but I had problems with the script and I really didn't like the actors playing the two American soldiers. What qualities did you feel an actor should have taken to Williams' role that Williams failed to?

Considering that the title references William Blake, I felt the play was about the death of English pastoralism of which Blake was so fond. So I felt that the audience was supposed to immediately assume that the rumbling was the giants, but upon further introspection conclude that it was instead the bulldozer. Giving the ending, and Rooster by extension, a heartbreaking, bittersweet, quixotic tone.
