BBC Radio 4 ‘Today’ feedback
141761135933599819269
Enjoyed every segment particularly the sacked Town Planner giving real ale a go.

Made me wonder how many thousands of local council workers doing useless admin might benefit from a subsidised housing work as u choose scheme funded from the billions of uncollected corporate tax avoiding filthy rich with their legions of legal cheats. Mates of Osborne and Cameron. Soul-destroying fossil fuel addicts who commit £ 40 Billion per year to military idiocy with no spoils of war from Afghanistan just a terrible escalation and undignified retreat.

Meanwhile less than 10% of Defence Budget used to rebuild sea and river flood defences. In 40 years the wrong-way-aroundness of these budgets will astonish. Stop building houses on floodplanes. The Upper Thames is going to flood because it is a bottleneck. The East Coast needs a couple of billion and a huge work force.

Dutch Engineers.

Will there be rollers on motorways to feed non big 6 generation. Alongside the linear wind turbines stretching for as far as the eye can see on roads made of ? To transform sun into energy?

Will all of the new homes destined for Oxfordshire be energy-generating, off grid. If not, why not?

No Justin collecting taxes is not the lost cause your tax evasion expert claims.

What happened to the ’91 BBC managers earning more than the PM’ story?

Dramatic irony is a very simple device which generates tension because the audience understand better than the characters the predicament they are finding themselves in. That’s it! Dramatic Irony.

One of the reasons mike Leigh goes through all that palava with his actors is that he doesn’t really think actors are intelligent enough not to play for ‘sympathy’ if they know what’s going on. I never agreed with that. Good actors are very precisely aware of the workings of dramatic irony and the dangers of playing for sympathy. Shakespeare is brilliant at having ‘in love’ characters at the very edge of insanity. Love is no joke. Its fucking agony most of the time and leads to hotheaded ocds misunderstandings and awful confusion. That’s Shakespeare’s comedy. Cruel!

“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
Men were deceivers ever,-
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.”
― William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado is the most quip-filled play. Born I believe with a female coauthor. Just a hunch. It feels like that. The flirting and the sparring in extended dialogue riffs is much more marked than the ‘plotting’. Compare to exquisite multi-zoned worlds of Midsummer Nights Dream.

This is a good line
“I can see he’s not in your good books,’ said the messenger.
‘No, and if he were I would burn my library.”
― William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

But having said that its always a good plan to get the plot sorted. Mum gave me Lambs Tales from Shakespeare and it helped as the Shakespeare bug took hold. Fuck the homework aspect! There’s only so much u can do in an evening. That’s why reading aloud is good.

Funnily enough I’ve started carrying complete Shakespeare again. I use it to raise height of my street amp. I’ll reread Much Ado again. Haven’t seen it or read it since seeing Mark Rylance about twenty years ago so its bit blurry.

Really got into Much Ado About Nothing last night! Thanks 4 prompt. How anyone, let alone youngster facing examination, can grasp the way Beatrice plays with obscure archery metaphors right from the off is beyond me. But wow great to have these details of the yeoman’s life laid down. Anyway yes confirms my hunch that this play charts some mysterious coauthrshio deal. Fool-inspired. Fools got very close to powerful ladies and taught them to be totally ridiculed in their presumptions and their vanity and their cruel lusts. Play happens just after a war. She says she would EAT those that Benedict slayed! That harks back to older times. Love the way these plays offer these little windows into very ancient ways. Looking up obsolete words and usages is not to be rushed. Hope homework got done and delivered shame to make discovering the wonderful poetic world of old shaky spears into dreaded chore. Just to learn a line or two. That’s anevening well spent.

Apart from all that I love Samuel Pepys for his brilliant descriptions of the river and lives of the thousands of watermen who plied for hire on Thames. Great great diarist and nothing if not self-laceratingly honest.

Interested in new approaches. Fresh angles. Never ever put ‘real’ or even historical figures in my plays. Always felt it was a cop-out. And despised playwrights who effectively defame complex lives by reducing them to their commercial purposes. Most theatre is pandering to prejudice
