Just musing in my easy chair with a glass of wine. Could this be done?
I think it would be great fun if someone or several ones would write a play that took us through several different phases of the English language throughout recorded time. Each act would represent a period in the history of our language. The first act could be in old English, the second middle English, etc., however it could be presented best according to those who know which periods would work best. Each act would use the same scenario, with only the words of that period being used.
It could be a great way to show how our language has changed over time. And think of the educational value.
