Palmer sought out Bogart in order to rekindle the creative dynamic they share, one that she's missed in recent projects like The Onion Cellar, which she staged at the ART's Zero Arrow Theatre in 2006. But sitting with the cast on the steps outside the school, listing the plays she and Bogart put on when she was a student there (one was based on the Legendary Pink Dots' 1985 album, Asylum), Palmer makes it sound like indulgence in a little nostalgia is as important as restoring a lost artistic bond. "The reason I'm doing this project," she says, "is to sit around and do this all day."
