Yesterday my theatre assignment was for students to read a short plot summary of “One Man, Two Guvnors” and then describe what they think the costumes and set would look like for the production.
(This is in anticipation of the National Theatre’s free YouTube broadcast of the show, the critique of which is their next assignment. The National Theatre saved me a LOT of stress for my classes by doing this.)
Here is an excerpt from one student’s answer:
“As for the colors its the UK. The UK is always depressing if you look up the picture of the stone hedge (scotland which is part of the UK)….”
At least they have heard of “Stone Hedge” Maybe that’s a good thing.?
I mean, Scotland IS part of the UK…
