Doug Rushkoff

It doesn't count because it's a play, but it did the same thing to me as Jude the Obscure. It's basically a well-made play that suddenly stops. The characters, in character, just stop and talk. Most people don't realize it's even happening, but the play becomes a conversation. People went nuts back in the day when the play came out, but people today watch it and think it's just psychologized drama. They don't realize how powerful it is to stop the narrative and suddenly just discuss what should happen.
