  • Bully's Parents

    It was a bright sunny Saturday morning. All the neighborhood children were playing soccer at the homeowners' picnic. There was a new kid on the block; a quiet fellow by name of Mustafa. I saw him sitting with him mother the whole time. He never came to play with the other children. I automatically termed him a 'mama's boy'. So I invited him to play with us. At first he refused. Ultimately him mother convinced to come and play with us and that we were really harmless and that it would be really g...
  • Major Role In The Tempest
    1,344 words
    The Tempest, penned by playwright William Shakespeare, as one of his last works circa 1612 is a story about many things: love, revenge, greed, politics, magic, and mystery. Even the notion of time plays a major role, and it is this aspect we shall be discussing in the following pages. Time plays a fairly large role in many of the ideas put forward in this rather wistful tale of one man's (Prospero) betrayal at the hands of his brother and his initial attempts at revenge. Essentially The Tempest ...
  • Characters Station In Life And Time Period
    910 words
    Theater 310 November 22, 1998 HARVEY The objectives of costume design were sufficiently met to meet the needs of the play. All the characters represented people in their natural positions in life with a little more accentuation that is often necessary in theater productions. The costumes aided in elaborating on each characters station in life and time period in which the play took place, which are a few objectives of costume designing. Most often one can distinguish a person's station in life fr...
  • Setting Of His Play
    866 words
    Short Answer #1- In Susan Glaspell Trifles, the dialog between characters creates the deep meaning of the story. The attitudes of the men is much different than that of the women, thus adding to one of the major themes. The speech of the women when they are alone conveys a completely separate attribute of the play. The men in this play treat the women as if they were nothing more than senseless little creatures who live their lives to do housework. The County Attorney and Mr. Hale speak of the w...
  • Inspector In The Play
    724 words
    J.B. Priestley's "An Inspector Calls" is a well-made play that attacks the social mores of his time; it contains all the ingredients of a well-made play, this is because it is captivating, and it holds the attention of the audience. It achieves this by the use of climaxes, the slow unravelling of the plot and the use of the detective-whodunit style. Despite this Priestley is concerned with the darker side of Capitalism. "An Inspector Calls" is Priestley's call for reformation. Priestley sees the...
  • Poor Production Decision For The Brlt
    459 words
    Aaron A. Aubrey English 2029-12 Mr. Decker 14 Nov 1999 "I Remember Mama" The recent production of "I Remember Mama" by The Baton Rouge Little Theatre left much to be desired in my mind. The real flaw in this unsuccessful production wasn't so much the occasional annoyances and quirks by the cast and director, it was the play itself. I felt that the local talent of The Baton Rouge Little Theatre was wasted on such a droll work. I found it difficult to stay focused on the play and instead found mys...
  • Focus Of The Play
    1,121 words
    The setting of Still Life is in present time, but the focus of the play is on the Viet Nam War era. Three characters address their experience in this time era. Their experience is told in a documentary style. The characters are behind a long table with pictures scattered everywhere, ashtrays, and water glasses. They address the audience instead of a single being when being interviewed. The interviewer does not include the questions being asked in the play, which leaves room for run on confusion ...
  • Troilus And Cressida
    1,658 words
    Troilus and Cressida appeals to the iconoclastic and sceptical temperament of the contemporary era. Its anxieties about the problems of locating stable values and meanings, and its distrust of the claims of military and political authority, have obvious applications to the personal and public crises of today. Discuss this statement in relation to Shakespeare's play. Troilus and Cressida was probably written around 1602, although scholars are not entirely sure of the exact date. Around the time o...
  • Quoting Of Pirandello's Work In His Play
    2,085 words
    Although Tom Stoppard established his reputation with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead when it was first produced in 1966, the playwright often appears reluctant to talk about his second play. Stoppard, who most critics report to be a very private person, repeatedly offers his interviewers only cryptic responses to their questions about the meaning of the piece. When asked whether or not Rosencrantz and Guildenstern embodies any particular philosophy, Stoppard replied that the play does not...

  • Physical Play
    459 words
    My childhood was a very happy one. I was given the attention a child was supposed to have been given when been raised. My mother gave birth to me on March 22, 1984 in Mount Sinai hospital. As a toddler I bonded really well with my fellow peers. I used all the different types of play growing up such as physical play, sensorimotor play and more. I was especially prone to rough and tumble play, which was horsing around, beating my friend, and get myself, beat down. That's the type of play where my ...
  • Times Plays

    Essay - Analyse the ways theatre has evolved through time. Close analysis of three plays from three different time periods should be included to show evidence of these trends. Theatre is like a child. Just as a child grows and is shaped by its environment, so too the theatre has evolved due to the culture and influences of society. The 3 texts that I have chosen to illustrate this are: Oedipus the King, Pygmalion and The Crucible. These texts illustrate the reply of playwrights of the day respon...
