It was crazy when I went to my nephew’s play.
I never have been a big fan of plays, but I wanted to show my support since he invited me.
His parents were as proud as ever, but everything was a mess! The auditorium was blazing hot because the air conditioning system wasn’t working. I even asked around to see what was going on with the A/C system and I was told that an HVAC company had been called earlier and the HVAC technician was supposed to show up at any time. Well, it’s a shame they didn’t decide to postpone the play or at least wait until the HVAC technician arrived. The place was so overheated without A/C that everybody was sweating, including the cast members of the play! Because they were all overheated and sweaty, the lines were absolutely butchered. It was like everybody couldn’t follow the play correctly because they were feeling overheated and disoriented. I had to admit though, because of this, a lot of us were laughing a lot because it made things funny. The cast members picked up energy when people were laughing and they made the best out of a bad situation. Finally towards the end, the HVAC technician arrived and got to work. When the cooling air finally kicked in and the A/C wafted across the audience and the members of the cast, everybody was so happy that they all standed up for a standing ovation! Even though the play was absolutely butchered, it was hilarious and they did pretty good under the circumstances. I think we were all applauding for the A/C relief as well, even though it was a little too late.
