Movies about speech and debate
Speech and Debate by Stephen KaramIve read this before, and Ill probably read this again - the changes that were made for the UK production were slight but great. Reading this play just brings me back to working in the lil Black Box theater where it started back in 2007. I was so in love with this play and the characters and how sharp and smart it all was. Working the house staff for this show was my first job in New York, and I sat in that theater probably 30-40 times, never once getting sick of it. It inspired me.
While reading this, I remember every line reading and can hear it in my head. This play brings back the best memories for me.
