A friend wrote a screenplay called the” Hermit Kingdom” and a group of us did a public reading of it at the Bas Blue theatre in Ft Collins last night. It is based on the 1871 American Expedition to Korea. It was quite enjoyable to read this and then indulge in a bit of analysis. There were 47 characters involved in many layers of story.
We’ve done this a few times now with new plays and screenplays. It is interesting to see how these things are written. Actors and directors get a lot of credit in plays and film, but only after the writers have conceived it and put it in print.
