Maurice: The theater is like a virus. It changes people--alters them. In a place like Cicely where you've got so many independent spirits, it's even more virulent. Petty jealousies. Creative differences. All kind of little spats. Then, finally, there's a suspicious fire in the barn of the leading man. People come up here to reinvent themselves, rewrite the book so to speak. They're not the kind of people who easily take direction.
