bright green twist

The playwright Samantha Ellis, who wrote the Wolves Journal for us, emails me that last week's post on Cloudcuckooland (pic), currently playing at the Liverpool Everyman, focussed too heavily on the production's offsets and carbon emissions:

'It seemed like what was green about the show was the offsetting etc. whereas in fact the content was the key thing. It's a great retelling of The Birds from an environmental point of view (the birds want revenge on humans for destroying the earth) and has probably raised the environmental consciousness of hundreds (maybe even's been on tour for ages) of children.'

Incidentally, the playwright Stephen Sharkey, who's responsible for giving Aristophanes' original this bright green twist, has his own blog.
