[IrishElk] West Side Story

Postby irishelk » Tue Mar 14, 2017 1:34 pm

I am watching a group of people, let's call them Group A. Group A is pretending to be Group B pretending to be Group C. To to so, Group A does something that neither Group B or C could have possibly done.

Where am I?

Are you watching a play? a movie? some sort of performance?

Does group A consist of adults? does group B? does group C? Are their genders relevant?

Does group A do this as part of their job?

Is a reenactment relevant? If so, a war reenactment? Is technology relevantly used?

Is the relevant anachronism in the source material? or was it added/improvised by the actors or other members of the production?
