So, are you enjoying the performance so far?
Well, the costumes and the set are marvellous, but the acting is a bit stiff. What do you think?
I think you're being a little critical. The actor in the lead role is fantastic. I suppose the chorus could be a bit better, though.
Do you know anyone in the play?
Actually, the woman playing Ophelia is a past classmate of mine.
Really? Is that why you wanted to come to the play?
That's only part of it. I absolutely adore this director. Every play he works on turns out great.
So you've seen other plays that he's directed?
Quite a few actually. By the way, after the play, there's always a big party for the cast and their friends. My friend has invited us. Do you want to go?
Sure, I'd love to meet the cast! Have you ever been in a play?
I've never had a part in a play before, but I used to be a part of the stage crew in high school.
What did you do?
I helped build the sets and find props for the plays. What about you?
I once helped out with costumes, but I didn't enjoy it very much.
I spent over three weeks sewing sequins on a coat.
That sounds kind of boring. Oh, look. They're dimming the lights. I think we should get back to our seats for the second half of the play.
