Pj, Shane O’Hara (a dance prof of pj’s from JMU), and I went to see ‘The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other” at the National Theatre on Saturday night.  “The Hour We Knew Nothing Of Each Other” is a one act play without words written by Peter Handke. The play has 450 characters and focuses on a day in the life of an unspecified town square.  It was a pretty incredible experience for those of us who love the art of crowd voyeurism.  And there were vignettes thrown in throughout that were specific to Londontown.  The omnipresent street sweepers, the old ladies with pull carts, and the sounds of airplanes overhead.
