Radio Play vs Actual Play
If The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth is ever performed, should it be a radio play or a real play? I would vote for a radio play because there isn't much to see at all. The stage directions could be read by a narrator. The sounds of the shuffling and creaky wagon wheels could be made authentically. I think this story would suit the medium of radio very well because it forces you to imagine what everything looks like. Not being able to see clearly is a great way to instill fear in the audience. Shadows and lights are easily represented in the imagination. Anyway, I think a radio play would be very cool. What do you all think?
