Hi,

My name is David and I've just finished my new play "Eating Swans". It's a film noir spy story set in the English Countryside. Naturally it's a comedy and I thought I'd post it here for some honest thoughts.

It is full lengh so I'll forgive you if you can't read it all. Just tell me where you got bored and stopped reading. You can find the play @

Thank you all so much and I can't wait to hear what you think...

Hi David,

Started reading then had to stop at the end of the first scene. I am confused.....is it a stage play or a film script? It starts in what i took to be a stage set, then describes what the villagers are doing in a filmic manner.

Sorry if i am being a bit thick but if you could clarify this i will go back and start again.

regards

It is a stage play set out for Four Actors.

There is some description of various activities that could be shown after the first scene but these would also be carried out by those three actors (or possibly film) however a director decided.
