In other news, I have started work on adapting the play for a radio style production. Indeed Mrs C=O saw me doing this earlier, and questioned my sanity. Razz
Surely, in this case, that's a good sign. Razz Good luck with said adapting.

Ah, I am so stupid (hardly unknown).

On the bright side, the fact that it the one thing which I picked it up as 'wrong' suggests, perhaps, that the rest of the script is thoroughly consistent and believable in its use of language???

You know, having visited the thread in question over at GB, I must say I don't think several of the contributors to that thread appreciate the seminal work that "Orchids in June" represents. They've even accused us Wrinklies of wanting to see this play produced with nefarious motives in mind.

I'm frankly shocked and hurt by this. Wrinklies, nefarious? The two words have never been used in the same sentance before now.

I've just waded through the G.B. thread. I feel that the C=O has done a sterling job there.

I'm afraid that I couldn't bite my tongue any more and added a comment of my own.

With regard to the Wrinkly production, I'd like to participate, but distance means that I cannot. In any case, I think a Scottish accent would be rather out of place.

Has casting begun, yet?

I would have thought a scottish accent would be perfect for the character of Jethro.

Bruce Campbell should be in this play. There is no higher praise than that.

I'm not sure that I could get my voice far enough down in my boots to play Jethro.

Mother doesn't want to discuss Brecht. She's in a state of shock.
What more is there to say?

Except, of course, that I demand to play the part of Bob Ware!
