Ever notice that itís Comedy and Tragedy always presented as disparate masks, always separate, never Janus-faced?  And all this is despite the fact--especially since Shakespeare anyway--the two are not altogether inseparable or indivisible or, in the case of Becket, even so as much as indistinguishable from each other.  It is time for a third mask to be made famous: Tragicomedy. 

 

It would bear a strange resemblance to Jayís face right before a show, part of him excited to step up and slip on a banana on stage, the other part of him unable to see where it rests on stage.
