From Gloria:

So, you are removing the dead statue and replacing it with a living person that should stand there as a statue, and when it moves, it should really move; not appear to do so, but truly move. What part does the faith play in that? What does the faith move when everything is moving by itself?

In an age of technical miracles, when even the most primitive human consciousness is already impregnated with practical, technical way of thinking, what can you accomplish with a few twitches of an eyebrow?

I am simply talking – on a completely theoretical level – about a play that lacks one chief quality – magic.
