It’s been a few weeks since ‘Extreme Rules’, and there is a lot of exciting things that have happened since. One of the most exciting parts of the pay-per-view was the return of Seth Rollins.
After Roman Reigns successfully defended the title against AJ Styles (and The Club), Rollins came out of nowhere and pedigree’d him. He then came on Raw the next day where Shane McMahon granted him a title match at Money in the Bank.
Let’s take a little break from politics, shall we?
WWE Extreme Rules, which aired on May 22nd 2016, had some amazing moments. The match between Roman Reigns and AJ Styles had been hyped up since the last pay-per-view. The intercontinental title became one of the most anticipated matches of the evening. People actually began to care about the Diva Women’s title, and Dean Ambrose was just being Dean Ambrose.
I stumbled upon this play by accident, finding it while browsing the Amazon web store (which has actually become a decent place to discover plays from around the world). When I looked it up, I realized that it was originally a French play translated by Christopher Hampton into English. I’ve never liked translations, as they never do the original work any justice, but this was a different story. This play was driven by the exciting and unique plot, and really shone through it’s interesting concept; adults are much, much worse than children when it comes to fighting.
Now, unlike my last review, this review is going to be more structured. I’ll be focusing on five categories; plot, writing, characters, set, and worldly affect.
This is the one play that I didn’t even hesitate to purchase. I first saw it on stage in 2011 at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, and convinced myself on the bus to purchase the play (which is something I usually didn’t do at the time). Even though the acting and the directing was brilliant, it was the text that really shone through. Hence this review.
