We just set our alarm for 6 a.m. — on a weekend. Really? Yes! Gorilla Theatre Productions has been waking up audiences with starting-at-sunrise Greek plays for 22 years, and we were ready to pull ourselves out of bed for one summer morning. Good call. And we were far from alone. By 7:15, some choice spots on the Nelson-Atkins' south lawn had been staked, but there was room for the groggy and the inexperienced as well. We donned hats and sunglasses, set down our lawn chairs and read through the program's plot of The Knights, a comedy by Aristophanes (adapted and directed by James Dean Carter and David Brisco Luby). The two-hour show had no intermission, but none among the 75–100 audience members looked restless. The ancient story and Gorilla's accompanying music — experimental, jazzy, circusy melodies performed by Brad Cox, Mark Southerland and Pat Conway, who composed it — are still going 'round in our heads.
