My Response to the play

Extracts from this document...


My Response to the play I quiet enjoyed reading the text "Rainbow's Ending". Here is a brief summary of the play: The story is about two giants, the world is peaceful, quiet and happy, until the giants have an argument over who is bigger, and have an eating competition. They eat anything and everything they can find, as they eat their way through the country. The rest of the country becomes helpless, dirty and noisy. Until one day the giants return and everything becomes a better place again! The group, in which I was in, came up with many imaginative ideas, for the particular scenes in which we worked on.

Now we are going to war, because George Bush wants too! He is too powerful for anyone to stand up to him, unless there are lots of people standing up to him in a protest.
