  • Play The Characters
    336 words
    CritiqueRENTWhen I was in New York the play that I saw was RENT. It was about a 2 and a half hour play. I loved every minute it! The play was well acted out and was very nice to see. In the play the characters were introduced and easy to identify. The music was well sung and the dancing was really good. I like how they change the lights to get a better feel of the characters emotions. It takes place in an apartment building that is not in the best shape. So the stage was well put together. If yo...

  • Play Jean
    556 words
    In some works of literature a character who appears briefly or does not appear at all has a significant presence. Even though a character may not be present in a play, does not mean that they have no importance. In fact, these characters have more of an influence over the way the other characters act and speak. Two plays that exhibit this are Miss Julie, by August Strindberg and Mourning Becomes Electra, by Eugene O'Neill. In Mourning Becomes Electra, Ezra Mannon has a relatively small part; he ...
  • Three Theban Plays
    617 words
    Throughout the year the texts we have studied have provided us with inspiration on the topic and themes of our devised drama. The texts we have studied in Theatre Studies have been Anton Chekov's "Three Sisters" and Sophocles' "Antigone", one of the three Theban plays. The link between these plays is the role of women and could be described as proto-feminist. "Antigone" shows us a woman who is prepared to go against the rule of the city and Creon, whom should be the dominant male in the play. "T...
  • Escape From The Play
    413 words
    Pirandello's play "6 Characters in Search of an Author" can in fact be interpreted as a tragedy, with the tragic flaw being fate. The actors are of a separate world, they are not a part of this tragedy. It is solely based upon all 6 of the characters who relive their scripted lives on stage. A play, a movie, a story will always have the same words and actions no matter how many times one sees it. Romeo and Juliet will always die, just as Rhett Butler will always leave Scarlet O'Hara at the end o...
  • Three Unities

    Elliott Friedman 12/1/97 The Three Unities The three unities of time, place, and action play a vital role in Shakespeare's The Tempest.

  • Rehearsals For The Play
    1,007 words
    In this play I played the role of Lord Loam. An old man in his early 70's with little clue of how to survive in the real world. When we had rehearsals for the play I wanted a good part. When I found out I was too play an old man I tried very hard to put on the voice of an old man. As this was set in the period of the early 20th century, I knew it had to be a posh sounding voice. This put a bit of stress on my voice, but I knew I would get used to it. The genre of the play was a fantasy comedy. T...

  • Every Character In Every Play
    593 words
    I found that one of the most common themes among Angels in America and almost all of the other plays was that of denial. As Ryan Childers said, Almost every character in this play is in denial. This makes a very good point. Many of the plays, movies and books that we experience generally have one or more characters that are in some kind of denial. This is very important to a story, and also very easy. Having a character that is in denial always gives several different options for an ending. The ...

  • Eddie Carbone As The Play
    766 words
    My initial reaction to the play was absolutely hideous, and my malcontent was vibrant. I felt that reading A View From The Bridge was a tedious waste of time and that the play itself was a trivial piece of literature. I found the play to be neither intriguing nor interesting in the tiniest fashion. The only aspect that I found mildly intriguing was the character of the protagonist, Eddie Carbone, as it miraculously appealed to my passion for psychology. Unfortunately, this enigma of Eddie's cons...

Another emphasis on the play is on the past that ceases to haunt his characters. O'Neill's characters of A Long Day's Journey into Night struggle with the past. These characters all seem to agree with Mary Tyrone who claims that a person "can...
