    Book review: Rotherweird

    Book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott This is a book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott. A book about a weirdly whimsical and secluded town with plenty of Tudor age secrets. Rotherweird is the first part of a trilogy. Summary I have humbly borrowed this blurp from the back of the book: “1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird. Some say they are the golden generation; some say the devil’s spawn. But everyone knows they are something to be revered – and feared. Four and a half centuries on, cast adrift from the rest of England by…

    Book review: Conversation-Sinfonietta

    Book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu This book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu, is part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. I aim to read 52 plays in a year, and I’ll review every single one right here on the blog! A symphony of conversation It’s a script meant for staging a basic conversation as if it was a choir singing together. This means a few repeated lines between the characters, who are named by their tone of voice. The script for Conversation-Sinfonietta suggested placing the actors in accordance with how you would place singers in a choir set-up. (The image below does not correspond with…

    Book review: The Keyhole

    Book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu This book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu, is a part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. Basically, it means that I try to read a play each week for a year, ending up with 52 scripts in total. So really, The Keyhole is more a script than an actual book. The Keyhole and absurd voyerism This script definitely had a lot going on in the subtext. Not in the naturalistic way obviously, but I saw this script play out in my mind in so many different ways while reading it. It was like the opposite feeling of reading…

    Book review: Professor Taranne

    Book review of Professor Taranne This is a book review of “Professor Taranne” by Arthur Adamov. It is really a script from 1953 and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. It’s a challenge where I aim to read one play each week for a year, ending up with 52 plays on the list. Professor Taranne Professor Taranne basically spends the whole play trying to establish his identity and does not succeed. It was like it was meant to be confusing for the sake of confusion. I get that the structure is the same as when you dream, which adds to the absurdity, but…
