Great advice from the expert I asked about the play. I did expect one difficulty and will need to rewrite substantially if I am to overcome it. That is the two sets.
The great issue is timing. Should I change tea to coffee because it is quicker to make or add more dialogue?
Can I get the same amount of excitement by telling about an attack rather than showing it? If not, can I move it?
Can I change the story completely so that it all takes place with the same set or should I abandon the idea of a performance and leave it to be read?
I take the point about the dialogue. I usually do change I will to I’ll. That’s just poor proof reading on my part.
I’ll do a rewrite and try again. I don’t think it would work on radio as it depends on being able to see where people are. I’ll be sorry to lose one set but I’ll try.
