Betty & Bill Fall in Love

Ives, "Sure Thing" -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

BILL: Amazing how you can live right next door to somebody in this town and never even know it.

I really really liked this play. I don't even know why, but I thought it was cute and a quick read and enjoyable. The above quote reminded me a lot of fate and how I think it was fate that brought Betty and Bill together.

I loved how they kept switching ideas or rephrasing sentences everytime the bell rang. It was like they said one thing, then a few different other possibilities, and the reader can pick on to go along with. Kind of like those books where you read them then you can pick an ending.

At first, Betty isn't open to talking with Bill, however, he is persistant and in the end they are like going to get married. Awww how romantic. :0)

I think this play in very universal. Any cafe, the names Betty & Bill, the light-hearted conversation.

How did others like the play?

I liked this play a lot Amanda. I thought it was really entertaining. I compared mine to Whose Line is it Anyway? If you want to read about it go to my bog but I thought it was like a game show where you had to think on your feet.
