My first impressions on JE

I enjoyed JE for many reasons, and one of those it that it was written a short time after the war, so it was a very relevant piece of drama for many people. I also like the lengthy stage directions, of what the play is full of, these long stage directions give the actors a lot of time to build up tension through the silences. Its interesting to see the bonds between the different characters and how some of the men break social expectations, which would have been highly controversial at the time the play was written. Its intriguing to see the diversity of characters through the language used, and it would have been a big eye opener to the people who originally watched it in 1929.
