Class, Ditch, Night Walk
23.06.2010 - 23.06.2010 27 °C
Went to class this morning and part of the afternoon. We talked about the play we just saw, Macbeth. It was a very interesting discussion to see how different people perceived the play. I had tons of homework to do, so most of the afternoon was spent reading. Tonight we saw Ditch. I had never heard of this play until this trip so I was clueless about what was going to happen. First we had to take the tube to Waterloo station, which provoked many renditions of the ABBA song. It is also the tube station where one of the Bourne movies was filmed.
This was the scene right before the entrance to Ditch. Which was located in a tunnel underground. We could here the trains going over the top of us throughout the play.
Before we were even able to sit down in the theatre we had to pass through this maze of tunnels which had strange art work. I was ready for someone to jump out, like a hunted house. The play was interesting. It took place in post apocalyptic London. If you couldn't guess it was very depressing. To cheer us up after the play we walked just around the corner to the London Eye and across the bridge to Parliament. The area is spectacular at night.
