The happy highways where I went And cannot come again. After reading the introduction to the play I realized that it was not going to be a ‘friendly’ play about a group of seven year olds. There was going to be something to give it a malicious twist. The play begins with one of the small boys playing happily by themselves. My first reaction was seeing as the children are being played by adults this will look quite ‘odd’. What I was having to understand was that it was being played by adults to emphasise that children don’t always play in a ‘friendly’ matter. When the boy starts pretending he is an aeroplane he quotes: ‘Then be all dead. Dead. Dead. Burnt to nothing’. He has said that all the people he has imagined will die and be burnt. This is a very disturbing thing for such a young child to be thinking, instead we would expect him to say: ‘and they will Continue...
