Lawrence invited us (and seven others, including Karen and friends of his from Cedar Falls) to see King Lear at an outdoor theater (Riverside Theatre) in Iowa City. It was really fantastic. I'd only read it (and that was ten years ago, for a high school class) so it was great to see it, and done so well. It was rather emotionally draining. The setting was a sort of dystopian future, which was cool. The only thing I didn't like was the music, which sounded like synthy marching music (?) - it really distracted from the gravity of what was happening.

We had a bit of an adventure trying to contact Lawrence since we forgot our cell phones at home. It involved pay phones and expensive phone cards and calling my mother-in-law to deliver a message. Lawrence compared it to a Shakespearian comedy of errors. I'm sure I've gotten together with people before I had a cell phone, but I don't remember how.
