I talked earlier about the things that fuel 14/48 but forgot to mention the beer because I don’t drink it. It must be mentioned. The tapping of the keg is an important part of the tradition. I asked steering committee member Peter Dylan O’Connor to explain it much better than I could. because, beer

Police Department, Visitor’s Check-In, Holding Cell, Peter Dylan O’Connor, apple… in a moment I’ve been transported to a different world. Thank you, live theatre!
