It: a show? a play? an effort? any current event?
Location relevant?
Soldiers were driving you crazy only because their presence? Or did they do anything relevant?

The relevant thing they did - did they do it to anyone? To each other? As part of the play? Were they bad actors?

They weren't Autons, were they? (on second thought, if they were in a play, guess not, but I just wondered if you could follow this line of thought)

And maybe a BLOOOOPER
As part of the play? should rather be a Yope than a Yes. They did something that is part of the play, but done differently, it wouldn't have driven me crazy.

Were they speaking in a non-Roman/Carthaginian accent? Were they trying to be funny? Or annoying?

Were you watching the play? Acting in it?

Were they German accents? YES! It's time for the

********SPOILER********
On Friday, I went to see "On the Road to Rome" performed by the English Drama group of my old high school.
The acting was decent and the plot was alright too, but I couldn't enjoy it because there was one thing that was bothering me: Most of the actors, especially the younger ones, had pretty strong German accents. They sounded absolutely horrible and were driving me crazy ):


Nice work everyone, and congrats to Kaylee kitteh for the solve (:

I'm pretty sure I have a German accent too, but it's definitely not that strong. Some years ago, that wouldn't have bothered me too much, but now I watch lots of English/American TV series and I've become pretty sensitive to non-native accents.
