At the end of ‘Renyolds Pamphlet’ two ensemble members set the bench for Eliza as the Burn melody comes in under the dub step type stuff. Eliza starts walking out on “somebody ruin they own life” and she sits down on “his poor wife” and the lighting is all blue and moody and it has a gel over it so it kind of looks like moonlight is shining through trees in her backyard. (Thats where I picture she is at least.) She sits on the bench holding her letters and looks at them and touches the words as she talks about “palaces of paragraphs” and she searches and scans for some kind of sign. The whole song she looks so hurt. On “You and your words, obsessed with your legacy” she stands up looking at the letter and circles around to the back of the bench. On the “Youu, youu, youu” she kind of shakes her head and pulls the letter towards her like she wants to hold it close to her chest but she can’t make herself do it because it hurts too much. When she first brings up the idea of erasing herself from the narrative she looks at the letter, front and back, and then at the other ones in her other hand and when she talks about future historians she looks at the lantern thats sitting on the bench and kneels down beside it. You very clearly see the thought process of her deciding to burn the letters. Then she sets one on fire as she “watches it burn” and she holds it and looks at it as it burns, and to me it looked like she dropped it when the flames got too close to her hand, like she wanted to feel it being destroyed before it hurt her, and she drops it into the bucket on “the world has no right to my heart”. Then she grabs the rest of the letters from where she set them down and right before she throws them in the bucket with the other burning letter she looks them over and you see her decide that she wants nothing to do with them and finally puts them in on “With only the memories of when you were mine”. Her face is very emotional, she’s sad and hurt and angry and then she stands up and looks at the letters as they burn, and her eyes have tears in them, and when she says “I hope that you burn” her faces goes blank, she gives up, she’s gone numb and its heart breaking and then she grabs the lantern with a final look at the burning letters and walks offstage leaving the pieces of our hearts shattered on the theatre floor.
