What Wrong With Angry?...

On Friday Andy, Kev, Stu and I went to the Kings Head in Islington's glamorous Upper Street to see What Wrong With Angry?

The story is about an 'out' sixteen year old school boy who while cottaging one day hooks up with the head boy at the school. However the course of true love doesn't run smooth.

The play was written in 1992 when the Age of Consent for gays was five years older than heterosexuals, and Section 28 prohibited schools and local authorities from depicting homosexual relationships as an acceptable view of family life.

    That's not a post - we need a review about what you thought of the play?

    btw have you tried the new datarock album - you will like it I think. It's like a fusion of franz ferdinand and air - by way of the pet shop boys.

    Well, the play was OK. But only OK. It had it's moments. But I would really recommend it. A little ham-fisted.

    A phrase that is wasted on the ears of many a theatre critic! :)

    Did you mean to write I wouldn't really recommend it or you WOULD really recommend it? I am confused, as the rest of the review suggests that you wouldn't recommend it but you did write that you would really recommend it. God I sound nuts.

  6. I mistyped. I meant to say "But I wouldn't really recommend it".
