When the lights came up on the bassinet in the otherwise darkness of the stage, the image more or less stands for everything that follows - childhood, loneliness and abandonment. It seems that an icon of the entire human experience, not just the implied infancy, is being presented. When the...

Acting In Baal
909 wordsBaal Of Desire Ben Stout Acting I Todd Mcinerney 11-14-96 On Thursday, November 7, I saw a performance of Baal, written by BertoltBrecht and directed by Evan Parry.

I didn't personally know any of the actors, even though I am in the same class as two of them, and I had definitely never heard of Alan Ayckbourn, so I consider my ey...
Comedic Performance Throughout The Entire Play
1,518 words"In Walks Ed" was the first play I ever attended and it was most enjoyable. I had no idea what to expect from the start.

I was most impressed with the entire feel of the Ensemble Theatre, from the calmness and quietness of the entire area, to its interior design...
