sullivan-pplGary Sullivan demonstrates that free speech is all about hurting people, wanting to hurt people, and other illusions of agency. These plays show us how much it matters by being brutally honest about how little it matters; the formal care and attention that goes into these collages weights even the lightest, most banal statements with foreboding emblematic import.

  1. Agency is for those who flee into the mouths of those who refuse to speak. We run with the duped, not with the hunted. We are caught by our seeing game.
