Well, Christine, I'm glad you enjoyed the piece. To answer your question, I have no idea why I chose those two accents. I knew I wanted each character to have his own voice so I picked the two most accessible accents in English. Plus, I had a couple jokes in the original draft about there not being any water in the water closet, but they are no longer there. I kept the accents anyway.

Like I said in previous posts, this piece was written for a very specific audience under very specific circumstances; the commission presented obstacles that could easily be turned into jokes.

Oh and by the way, don't ever think that anyone around here would rebuke your critique on the basis that English is not your primary language.
