Extracts and sumaries from the post-production script of Act 1 scenes 1-11 of the documentary drama, ‘Bigger, Better, Brighter’. A musical documentary play based on the stories of Bletchley’s post-war pioneers. Devised by Rib Davis and Roger Kitchen.
The play was first performed by the Living Archive Project with the Living Archive Band at the Sanctuary, Bletchley, North Denbigh, Milton Keynes in early December, 1996. This 1997 version is closely based on the original 1996 version of the script as developed during the rehearsals and the initial production.
The descriptions summarise, scene by scene, the narrative of the play. Everything in the play is based on an original documentary source, the exception being some of the songs, where an element of artistic licence was involved.
