Review for ‘The Debate At Bosworth Field’

My 10-play play THE DEBATE AT BOSWORTH FIELD just got a very nice review on the New Play Exchange:

“A delightful historical romp! Like Monty Python meets the History Channel – What fun characters, and cracking dialogue. Yancey’s imaginative set-up finds us out on Bosworth Field – the declarative WIN for Lancaster over York, duh – in this all-too-relevant satire. Thank you to this bold author for stuffing a short play with tons of characters! It’s hilarious, with all the farcical strings pulling in criss-crossing dimensions. You can say a ten-minute play can only have 2-3 characters, but then you wouldn’t have this epically hilarious gem! No wonder it was recently selected for a competitive festival. It’s a hoot.”

— Rachael Carnes

The festival she references is the Fight Like a Girl festival in Manchester, Great Britain in August (it’s a fund-raiser for cancer research). Here’s a synopsis:

THE DEBATE AT BOSWORTH FIELD
Imagine if Richard III and Henry Tudor had met in a campaign-style debate instead. This time, Richard wins. Cast: 8 – 5 male, 2 female, 1 non-gender.
