How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

On Saturday evening, I was finally able to go back to the theatre to see "Waiting for Godot". It has always been my favourite play by Samuel Beckett and I know it by heart, so I really wanted to see it on stage. When the curtain rose, silence fell in the audience and the rest of the world just disappeared. The cast was absolutely incredible, and I found the direction inspired. I loved seeing my beloved characters come to life and I'll go (there) again as soon as I can!

Clever stuff happening!
