Play Reading 1
We meet once a month on the 4th Thursday alternating with the 3rd Tuesday at 1pm in each other's homes.
Plays read depend slightly on what is available to borrow from the library. We have been trying recently to read plays that are going to be on in London so that we have a better understanding when we go to the theatre. So we read Lorca's Yerma before going to see it at the Young Vic; it had been completely rewritten, which made it even more fascinating.
Other plays we have read recently include:-
Tom Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound
Brian Clark's Whose Life Is It Anyway?
Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party
And quite a few murder mysteries!
We tend to meet, read the first few acts of the play, pause for tea and discussion, then carry on to the end with more discussion. We normally finish somewhere about 4pm.
