Tonight, you are withheld from the finest scenes in the play, because none of us would be able to bear it. This is why the evening bears the title “Kill Your Darlings”. We are not going to present you with the best scenes of the play tonight, because we could not bear them at all – including me. I could never again write another play, and you, you could never again go to see another piece of staging, if the best was already behind you, and you felt like you will never experience that feeling again. This is why we have decided to cut the great moments, because they can’t be lived.
I walked down the streets past these terraced houses, and I would have gladly told you: “I wouldn’t want to enter those houses with the brightly lit windows for the world. I wouldn’t want to talk to the people behind those windows, not here nor at any other place in the world, not even on The Streets of Berladelphia.”
