Excerpt from 'A Stage Manager's Memoir' by Gabrielle

"You could have a sphere made of titanium with no discernible flaws or joins of any kind, one that had been tested in the freezing airless expanse of space and the hyper-burn of re-entry into Earth's atmosphere to no ill effect, one that had been shoved off the back of a speeding semi-truck into an oncoming envoy of armored tanks and that had emerged unscathed, and if you gave that sphere to an actor for a prop it would be irreparably shattered within two hours. And the actor would say they 'hardly touched it' and have no actual idea how the breakage occurred."
