Post "I Am a Camera" by John Van Druten
How does this play differ from Cabaret? How is it similar? Just any information on it and how it relates to Cabaret would be good. :) Also, could the play be performed today without being considered dated?

Thanks.

The play is far from dated. its a very intense period piece.

I Am A Camera was used as the basis for the film plot of Cabaret directed by Bob Fosse.

Are the characters and the plot essentially the same in both pieces?

Does anyone know if this play is appropriate for a high school?

I've read it but don't really remember. Look in a library. My local one has it.

Post Does anyone have this online?
I just bought this from my local bookstore, and would really like an online text version so I can reference to parts of it for an essay i'm writing. If anyone could help, save me having to type it all out, that would be really appreciated! Thank you in advance. Stuart :)
