THE SOCIAL EXPERIENCE: I went to the performance with my friend from high school, Marlana. We sit together during lecture so it was interesting to sit next to each other during the performance because we’re very comfortable discussing the topics and themes covered in class so we discussed the themes of the play during intermission and at the end of the performance. We mutually benefitted from the sharing of each other’s perspective. I think attending the show with a friend enhanced my experience considerably. The role of shared experiences is important in learning from those around us and creating memories that will lead us closer to the Good Life.
