So long, reality!
The Evening Standard critic Nicholas de Jongh wrote a play and this is what he learned: "I understood I had chosen to be a theatre critic because it allowed me to find permanent refuge in an escapist world of performance. By writing my play and watching it rehearsed I have understood in what a long-term flight from reality I have lived."
The reviews of de Jongh's Plague Over England are good, by the way. Which bodes well for my script-in-development, Scourge Above Canada.
