"Wyrd bith ful araed. Fate is fate." Review with images

AdvantagesSolid characters, great laughs, profoundly moving

DisadvantagesA play, really, is meant for performing. This is only half the experience. If that.

"...certainly one of those plays. == Someone Who'll Watch Over Me == The play opens on a bare room, where two men are chained up. They're playing at _Desert Island Discs_, and extolling the virtues of Ella Fitzgerald. After a couple of minutes Edward, an Irishman, starts re-enacting Dawn Run's victory in a horse race. Then he and Adam, an American, begin to wonder whether they're going to be taken out and shot, or released by their unseen captors. By ..." Read review

Frank McGuinness... A great play-write!

AdvantagesEasy to follow, sharply funny

DisadvantagesWish there was more detail in individual stories told

"I bought this book ages ago (I think it was only £0.50 from a car-boot sale), I only finished it yesterday, I think it took me a good 2 months to read it; this was mainly due to work and other obligations. The book is adapted from the play version which I have heard has done very well in its target market. I would read this book again, absolutely, but only if I didn't have other things occupying my time. Its a book that is easy to follow, and that ..." Read review

similar by Price (less than 5 GBP)
Superbly written, witty, funny, and yet thought-provoking
If acted badly, is an insult to a superb piece (*)
very, very, very funny
you have to understand some classical athenian history and background knowledge (*)
Timeless piece of drama in it's rawest form
Not for the easily offended (*)
The last production had David Tennant as Hamlet!
Reading and analysing can be painful and lengthy! (*)
Economy of style; oblique, sharp wit and humour; palpable tension; comprehensible mathematical and scientific ideas.
Can be a tad complex; I haven't seen it onstage; not available on audiobook or film. (*)
