this is our homr until we get our own board
what are you favourite plays?
i wrote one a week ago in which 4chan was composed of a group of dogs, each board with its own personality based on the posts in their threads, and they all lived in a large home together, there was a lot of fucking going on. it didnt turn out well.
Personal recommendations for getting into theatre? I listened to The death of a salesman and I think that's the first time I've been moved. After that I read the Seagull and I felt so sorry for Irina
i destroyed it, it didnt get further than a single short act in which sci developed a way to restore testicles, and lgbt became infuriated when b suggested that they could even give her testicles since she clearly wanted them so badly. of course, the one who neutered them all in the first place was pol, since he's against mutts breeding.
Some good ones
Red by John Logan
Anything by August Wilson
Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Richard the Third by Shakespeare
I honestly prefer musicals to plays, but I'll probably get called a fag for saying that, and I'm not sure this is the appropriate place to discuss that.
I wanted to write a Spenglerian analysis of an Australian comedy called 'The Castle', then I wanted to write a play based on its general run of characters in a Medieval setting.
It wouldn't be a comedy but a sort of drama. It just struck me as being good source material, I guess.
Would anyone here rec going to see red?
I'm interested enough in the subject matter that I'm fine with it not being something great but I don't want it to be forgettable either.
It's a really great show man, it has some amazing parts, and never really gets boring either. Also, it's pretty short (I'd say 80 or so minutes?) so it's not like you're losing that much time if you don't end up liking it.
Polanski's Macbeth has the best fights I've ever seen in a movie. Both historically accurate and intense as fuck.
The new Macbeth was ok, but in my opinion, some scenes dragged on for too long. Which is weird, considering the fact that it's 30 minutes shorter than Polanski's version...
Taymor's Titus also dragged here and there, but Anthony Hopkins and the design are still incredible and worth a watch.
Have you even seen the play?
Developed a love for Richard II in particular. Although it's gotten plenty of love on the stage in the last century, it hasn't gotten much attention in the movies, unfortunately. I'm stuck with the Hollow Crown, which is great overall, but they really overplayed the "lol he's a fag" aspect to Richard's character. There's so much more to him than that.
Fundamentally he's a brilliant poet and actor/director in the drama of his own life. Half the fun of the play is seeing all the little ways his overdoing the "production" aspect of kingliness often leads himself to debase and unking himself. It really gets me in the feels when he dies like a man/king, unarming and killing several of his assailants. Despite his own best efforts to undo himself, knowingly or not, he was made of the stuff of royalty. It's hard to look back at the play as a whole and see were his nobler nature shines through his playacting.
And fuck Bolingbroke, that usurping asshole.
I haven't read Richard 2, but this all sounds interesting, I feel like maybe I'll have to give it a shot sometime. Of course, I already spend a lot of time reading plays because I'm
A theatre majorbut if I can find the time soon I definitely will.
