    In Joan Didion’s book, The Year of Magical Thinking, which is referenced throughout the play, I stumbled upon this passage, which seemed to illustrate a similar image to the one used to inspire the auditorium doors…”I had dreamed an image that, when I woke, I knew had been death; the image was that of an ice island, the jagged ridge seen from the air off one of the Channel Islands, except in this case all ice, translucent, a blued white, glittering in the sunlight. Unlike dreams in which the dreamer is anticipating death, inexorably sentenced to die but not yet there, there is in this dream no dread…the ice island…seemed on the contrary transcendent, more beautiful than I could say, yet there is no doubt in my mind that what I had seen was death.”
