Something Useful for 2016 - Exercise No. 19

Years ago (decades), I took part in a production of Confusions by Alan Ayckbourn, a set of five interlinked plays that dealt with the concept of loneliness and miscommunication. I played Beryl in the final play, A Talk In the Park, where the five characters talked at (rather than to) each other as they sat on a series of park benches.

It's an interesting visual approach to use a bench, made for more than one, to discuss loneliness.


Humans are by nature gregarious. We like to be with others, to belong, to be part of a community (be that family, village, football supporters club or work force). It isn't surprising then that we fill our leisure spaces with seating made for more than one.

Think of a bench. It could be a park bench, a garden bench, or even a church pew. Add a cast to your bench of one or more. What would your bench story be?
