The play (3 Days In May) was excellent. It’s by a guy called Ben Brown and only debuted in August of this year. I learnt a lot, especially about history lol. There are only 8 characters in the whole play, 6 of those being the main ones. I bought a copy of the script so that I can have a read. See how the writer set things out on the page. Some quality acting, especially from Warren Clarke (as Churchill), a simplistic stage set and a small theatre made it almost feel like you were a fly on the wall for meetings of the War Cabinet in 1940 🙂
I love this idea, a play based on 3 days in History, the author inventing the conversations and altercations that would have taken place around those events. Embellishing the facts to produce a work of fiction that educates and entertains at the same time.
It’s made me realise that it’s something I would really like to try my hand at.
Today will be my last day of rest, before I start on part 4 of the course. This next section is entitled Style & Language. Apparently, I’m developing a style, but I’m not sure exactly what that style is yet *snigger* I guess I’ll see when I do the first exercise 😉
Excellent Play, I would have loved to been able to see something like this as part of my early education.
True, but I think, as a kid, I probably would have got quite bored 😉
