Write a descriptive story about an event which took place in a public park
 
When the Experimental Theatre Company in Singapore held their highly anticipated performance of 'Medea' at the West Coast Park, it was an event that took Singapore by storm as it was a hitherto untried venue for a serious play. My friends and I were avid theatre goers and decided to attend it even though the ticket was rather costly.

We turned up for the event at about six in the evening and were shocked at the vast number of people who had already gathered. As it was to be a performance that capitalized on natural changing light, the evening was the best time to stage the play. We had to pick our way carefully through the crowd of people who had come fully armed with picnic mats, baskets of food and even binoculars. It was a crowd who had come prepared to enjoy themselves. Energised by such enthusiasm, we settled down quickly under a tree.

The opening of the play was spectacular. Using the colorful palette of the setting sun in the distance, the play opened with a dance sequence that was breathtaking. We were so engrossed in the dance that when the actors and actresses streamed in from around us, we were visibly stunned. Never before had we experienced actors and actresses moving around the audience instead of being on a clearly-defined stage. But it was a novel experience as the intensity of the drama was driven home for the audience.

But a hilarious interruption to the unfolding drama took place when an errant child tottered forward to one of the actresses and insisted on being carried. When the professional actress ignored the child, the latter started bawling loudly, earning some titters from the audience. When the child still refused to move away, one of the actors finally picked the child up and deposited him safely out of their way. It was really funny watching the actor trying to quell the petulant child.

But the play got back on track as we watched the tragedy of Medea powerfully enacted by an actress. Torches strategically placed now lighted the set and the entire spectacle of shadows and blazing light was stunning. Safe for the earlier interruption, the play progressed at a pace that was invigorating and yet heart-rending. We were enthralled by it.

When the play finally ended, we all rose as one body to give it a standing ovation. The actors and actresses took their bows and the audience started to pack up. We were so exhilarated by the power of the play that we decided to go for supper to discuss it. It was certainly a wonderful experience.
