A trip to the Globe ROH’s side

HBL and ROH stood on Blackfriars bridge shouting abuse at each other oblivious of the people crossing the road to ovoid them. “Where’s the bridge gone”? ROH shouted at HBL “You’ve got us lost, “she barked back.                                         

To think that they were going to the Globe Youth Theatre to get acting lessons they had put on quite a performance.

They had left the hospital just an hour before. HBL wanting anything but to go, and ROH only going because he had been threatened by his mother. She had threatened that she would cut him off from his credit card. ROH refused to do anything remotely active and insisted that they both take a cab. But HBL had insisted that they walk, saying that it was only a short walk.

After about an hour of walking and numerous arguments they arrived at the Globe with sour faces and tired bodies. Luckily there was a Starbucks outside and they were able to refuel.  They walked into the Globe to find a bunch of 25 year old students. So frantically they both ran out Starbucks in hand. After mustering up the courage, they walked back in to find that the students were just tourists. 

By the time they got back KJ (the head of the youth theatre) had arrived and was waiting for them. She asked questions like how they were and was there any change at the hospital. They told her that they were both fine and that there was no change at the hospital. She then left to talk to other staff. So HBL and ROH were left sitting their own making each other more nervous.

When it was finally time to go in they were so nervous that they were both shaking.  They sat down together like conjoined twins. They both were determined not to look like they were having too much fun. Both HBL and ROH were starting to relax until the group leaders said the worst thing they could. They said that mobile phones are banned. So as fast as they could I phone’s and Blackberry’s went under their clothingAfter countless name games and ROH still not remembering any one’s name they finally gave up. And were taken on a tour of the Globe and they were told that they would be singing on the stage. ROH and HBL looked  at each other in pure shock.

When they got back to the classroom they were asked to act out how they got to the Globe. They both burst out in laughter so loud that everyone looks at them. So they did exactly what they hade been asked to do they start shouting at each other.

After watching everyone left go home. The homework was to bring back a song that best described togetherness.

    Would you be able to add a map to show the route you took?
    Well-edited ROH. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
    How did it go tonight?

    I had to laugh right out loud when I read this post, RoH … The first few paragraphs were written in such a lively and dramatic way – exactly as if you were telling me the story. I could hear your voice and see your gestures and picture HBL and you shouting at each other and giggling and nervous. You managed to recreate the atmosphere. I was also VERY impressed with the use of paragraphing and punctuation. I can see that you are working on editing your text before sending it for publication, and this is very pleasing.

    I would love to hear how the Youth Theatre visits continue. It was a pity that you had to go on your own this week. Did you make any new friends? I am so proud of both of you for going that first day, as I know it must have been very scary. I look forward to the next installments

    RoH: I am so sorry that I was not able to attend your most recent performance at The Globe. I would love to have a news update about the event itself, and your thoughts and feelings about your own performance. I am sure others would be intersted too.
