I return to Suzan-Lori Parks, whose insight “Standard Time Line and Standard Plot Line are in cahoots!” appears as the first epigraph in the book. I focus on Parks’s 365 Days/365 Plays in which she penned a play every day for an entire year; the plays were then performed across the nation over the course of a year, 2007. Parks’s project has seemingly overcome the problem with time, producing the “being there” that Mosley called for but could not represent.
