Following in the same vein as Aunty Marianne, I had a conversation with Blodwyn's 6 year old son the other evening. He was telling me about his school play which was Goldilocks and the 3 bears in which he played Father Bear along with 3 other boys (there were 7 Goldilocks's at the last count) and the exchange went along the lines of:
Me: So it all went well then?
Me: Everyone knew their lines then?
6yo: Yeah.........but the 4th years play was much better, it was about the war!
Me: The war? (Thinking WW2)
6yo: Yeah - one king killed another king and then he was killed and the first one that was killed was a ghost.
Me: Not WW2 then - was it the Civil War?
6yo: Nah! Don't think so............. I think it was by someone called William Shakespeare!
Me: (desperately trying to remember my Shakespeare) Do you know what it was called?
6yo: Can't remember - it was somebody's name.
Me: (Penny dropping) Was it Macbeth?
6yo: Oh yeah that's what it was called - Macbeth (a pause, and then with gusto and obvious admiration) ..............The songs were great!!!
Now is it me? I haven't seen Macbeth for a while but I don't remember any songs?!? This I would pay to see.
