Orlando Live Read

Come to the first Orlando Live Read…

Professional actors cold reading a classic movie script, complete with stage direction. No rehearsals, no staging. Based on a "table read", when actors & director get together to read a script out loud the first time, it's a great chance to see the blueprint of a movie, and a insight into how actors create characters.

It will give the audience another way to experience a classic film, and remind them why they love those movies in the first…

Ideology identity

Perverting the empathy revolution

This construct is not organic, it is contrived

Rather than the Fibonacci sequence

We instead have non-sense

Like forced adoption in the UK

Barbaric Social engineering

Imploding the nuclear family

Brave New World Style

Until “mother” becomes and dirty word

And “father” even fouler

Heartless faceless bureaucrats steal the infants

Of the working class and hand…
