Ten-Minute Play Analysis & Evaluation Analysis is examining something in pieces and parts to understand it as a whole. Evaluation is making a judgement, or a claim, and supporting it with evidence. After reading the plays Sure Thing and Trash Anthem, I want you to analyze each play 's structure, characters, and dialogue; then write an evaluation of which one is the more effective play. Your paper should be roughly 2 pages in length.
Family; a blessing, or a curse? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).
William Shakespeare shows life as if it is drama and the different stages in life are different actors who are acting in this play. ” All the worlds a stage, and all the men and women merely players” (Shakespeare, William, 794, literature). This poem is quiet similar to a previous poem which we studied ‘The Road Not Taken’. It can be compared to this poem because both of the poets spoke about the different journeys in life.
He'll still have his love towards Annabel, but he is moving on in his life. On the other hand, you have "Army's" view of "Annabel Lee." "Army" shows how affected he is about the loss of Annabel Lee, but he is saying that he is trapped in a trance to think about her nonstop. His tone in the song screams out to people that he still loves Annabel but it is driving him crazy thinking about her every day and night. "Army" states that she has him trapped and he is asking her to release him even though she is not alive. "
“Life is a drama full of tragedy and comedy. You should learn to enjoy the comic episodes a little more.” The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls has very important life lessons that will teach you to laugh at your tragedies sometimes. The most important lessons are that struggle makes you unique, you either sink or swim, and sometimes crisis makes you realize your potential. In the memoir, you will learn these and accept them.
2015, 129). Each performer acquires roles which contain expected behaviours that are appropriate to the performance of that role (Willmott, 2018). When we perform our roles to other actors and to our audience, we view them as theatrical productions. Our performance displays
Memory plays the most important role in the The Glass Menagerie, because the figure narrator of the play, Tom Wingfield, tells the story through his own memory. Because the story is told through Tom’s memory, it is therefore non-realistic, sentimental, dimly lighted and takes a poetic licence. What this means is that whilst Tom may omit some details, he may exaggerate other details in accordance with his emotional connection to the memory. However, despite all of this, Tom tells an honest story. He quotes that “memory is seated predominantly in the heart.”
While Banquo is still alive, Macbeth and he are given a prophecy by the three witches, and then they talk about it, but are intruded by Angus and Ross telling them that some of the prophecy is true. Macbeth later says to Banquo that “Think upon what hath / chanced, and at more time, / The interim having weighed it, let us speak / Our free hearts each other” (1.3.155-158), so they can talk more about their prophecy, Macbeth becomes king and Banquo has children that will become king. While he is alive him and Macbeth share
Greek culture flourished during the Classical Period, despite the large amounts of turmoil that occurred. Many religious festivals incorporated performances of drama, tragic and comedic theatrical works. Many of these were written by writers who would become known as classic writes including Aeschylus, Euripides, Aristophanes and Sophocles. At the same time as these literary developments, theatre and stage design blossomed alongside it. (Silberman, et al. 1996).
(The Waiter, 16). This quotation represents how Wannous is showing the audience how people nowadays treat intellectuals and whoever is trying to make the Arab world great again. Similarly, in The King’s Elephant, Wannous changed the usual way of organizing a play by starting a play with a sudden and tragic event or the “climax” instead of the exposition. “The voices grow louder, coming from behind the houses down right. The cries and laments of the women die down.”
Obviously it does not work out. Firstly the script is being changed by the aging diva Helen Sinclair, who wants her role to have more influence, character and screentime and slowly manipulates Shane by seduction. Eventually the script is majorly changed by the Olive 's bodyguard, Cheech, who claims that the play is rubbish. He turns out to be quite apt at playwriting and the final script is something else than what it started. There is no final director, because the script underwent so many changes that the original notes almost do not exist, and the major changes that Cheech introduced become almost a new script.

Stop Kiss captured my heart, thoughts, and attention. The show motivated a paradoxical behavior—to be focused and distracted. I was distracted by the costumes, lighting, and lack of diversity, but was focused on real connections, fantastic quick changes and phenomenal, raw acting. Son 's play is meant to inspire thoughtfulness and support, and Conboy framed that beautifully with two dedicated actors, Rosie and Lauren. If you want to see the extraordinary and raw behavior between two lovers, I would recommend San Francisco State 's production of Stop Kiss.
Harrison has carefully structured the sequence of scenes to create "an accumulation" of ideas about being "Stolen". This is particularly effective in the repetition of scenes to emphasise the stories and show subtle changes in the characters. A good example is the repetition of the Line-Up scene. In "Line-Up age twelve", Shirley is particularly cynical, as she believes they will only be chosen to be unpaid servants for white families, while in the horrific scene in "Line-Up 3" depicts Jimmy’s ignorance to Shirley 's warnings of being chosen and Ruby 's traumatic behaviour from the effects of being chosen. The "Unspoken Abuse" scenes are very effective in showing the deterioration in Ruby 's mental health as she returns from her weekends, as for Jimmy, the irony of wanting so much to be chosen, ends in him suffering corresponding and similar physical and sexual abuse to Ruby.
