Theatre

We went to the theatre last night to see Lord of the Flies.It was brilliant.The set was amazing.The cast all female where in the book it is males.However,they kept the boys name.I didn’t quite get that.The cast included identical twins.On Saturday The Guardian gave it four out of five.It is a joint production with Sherman Theatre Cardiff and our Theatr Clwyd.We are so lucky to have this theatre five minutes away.Two theatres,a film theatre ,a smaller studio theatre and a function room for Comedy Club and recitals etc.We live in a small market town in NE Wales.Population 10,000.
My blanket is moving on but I have started knitting mittens for the homeless,am doing a 1,000 piece jigsaw and reading the book for my next Reading Group session.Three Things About Elsie.Anyone read it.I am finding it a bit close to home!!!
On Saturday we are going to Manchester to take our eldest granddaughter out for the day.She started Uni there two weeks ago and is feeling a bit homesick.Mum and Dad and brothers are four hours away .We are about an hour away so looking forward to seeing a lot more of Ella.

  1. I’m sure your grand daughter will love a day out with her grandparents, hope it soothes the homesickness xx

  2. Ah, well....I suppose if Shakespeare can have male actors playing female characters with female names, then the reverse is true for Golding. It must have been a good play. I remember reading this at an all-girls school. It would have meant more if the characters had been girls.

  3. You sound busy with your book, your projects, your theater. How nice you have things so close at hand. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your blanket. My daughter didn't really get homesick when she went off to college...she was so busy, no time to think about it. Funny, now that she's older, working etc, I think she does more.
