On Tuesday, I had an opportunity to see a performance dedicated to major English historical events.
We could see the beginning of history from the Roman occupation till Elizabeth I ‘s access to the English throne. For more eye-catching, the actors engaged the audience in situations like the Battle of Hastings or the reign of Henry VIII. The actors spoke English all the time and they only included Czech to entertain us.
My first impression was full of horror as only one actor was standing on the imaginary stage, but soon after the second actor came, and I calmed down. I had to get used to their accent, however, their English was excellent. They were both humorous and showed the history in an interesting and gripping way.
I would highly recommend this performance to children who have already studied these topics in History and want to connect them with English. It helped me a lot to remember all the important dates and events in the history of England and I have a better overview now.
