A momentous moment in the play was when Vernon was about to die.
There was a prop used which was representing the cross on where Jesus died.
This ties in with the beginning of the play, in where the character Jesus shot 17 students.
Another important prop used was the black telephone used by Vernon and Taylor.
Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. But this pool of blue water had a more sinister representation; anyone to touch it, was to die.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; whose misadventure piteous overthrows. The fearful passage of their death-marked love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. We saw Mecrutio, Paris, Tybalt, Romeo and Juliet all fall to their demise after they touched the seemingly harmless pool of water.The lower end of the scholars’ table where I was sitting was only a yard or two from high table where the dons dined and, hearing those harsh, quacking tones without knowing whose they were, I said to my neighbour that it sounded like the voice of the devil. It was Auden, at that time still with blondish hair and the face yet to go under the harrow.I don’t think I’d read much of his poetry or would have understood it if I had, but when Auden gave his inaugural lecture as professor of poetry the following year I dutifully went along, knowing, though not quite why, that he was some sort of celebrity.presents itself at first as a satire of Russian stories--“laughter followed by misery” according the comically cynical Narrator (Michelle Monteith).Moscovitch’s daring experiment is, in fact, to intersperse the Narrator’s acerbic commentary with the touching, sensitively played scenes of her tale of the doomed love affair of a flower girl Aebovka (also Monteith) with the gravedigger Piotr (Aaron Willis).In terms of attitude it has not brushed away the naïve notion that academics’ pursuits and behaviour are of the utmost importance.To the outsider the play is a neat little satire on the burden gender politics has placed on course subject matter and on student-teacher relations in university.The main character Vernon, wore jeans and a plain bright top, which represented his age and his class.Vernon characterisation fitted to a troubled teenager. Yes people, this is a review of Queensland Then there is the pool of water, kicking off the show with a something dropping from the ceiling and creating a splash that caught everyone’s attention, it was a majestic blue and at times was hard to keep your eyes off.The set was a playground type jungle gym the actors could climb up jumper over and run down. It gave a tomb like feel and for and for being the only piece of staging used throughout the whole 2 hour production, Jennifer Flowers; job well done.
