Caged Birds

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Drama question. Tom Hay The play I have chosen to write about is 'Caged Birds'. I thought this play was good, partly because I was impressed by the quality of the acting by two of the actors; one who played the woman who was described as 'wild' and was the main character of the play and the other who was the one who played the woman with the mobile phone.

Middle

The first scene shows the inmates in their comfortable cell. One inmate had a laptop, another was sat on a comfortable sofa with a duvet, another on a swing and another cooking. Each inmate was doing their own thing.

Conclusion

The climax of the play was shocking because they turned on her and killed her, and then killed the woman who had been persuaded and had then tried to persuade the others. The actor playing the 'wild woman' gives the impression of being wild by the way she moves around the stage. She runs around, she slams the door and pulls at the other people in the cell. Her voice is excellent because she projects it well. ...read more.
