Two PLays: I Can't Remember Anything, and Claraby Arthur Miller
Arthur Miller’s emotionally-charged one-act plays explores one of the fundamental issues of mankind—the selective amnesia of the past.
In Danger: Memory! two contrasting but thematically related one-act plays, I Can’t Remember Anything and Clara, are concerned with remembrance. The first play portrays the shared and disputed recollections of two elderly friends, and Clara dramatizes the resistance to brutal present-day fact when a young woman’s father speaks with a detective investigating her murder.
Like all of Miller’s plays, Danger: Memory! holds the powerful emotional charge and social perceptions associated with his work while reaching for one of the fundamental issues of mankind, the selective amnesia of the past.
