Coursework play : 3 Friends

Extracts from this document...


GCSE Theatre Studies Coursework ACTORS: Mike McClue Max Venison Matt Lyth Cath Lewis Katie Molloy We based our coursework play around friendships and relationships. We used these topics to try and emphasize the fact that friendships are more important then relationships. This was what we tried to show as a moral to the audience. Their reaction was quiet yet they seemed to understand the moral behind the story that we tried to put across to them. Our play was about 3 friends who find themselves torn apart by 2 women.

The play on the whole was a success because the lighting and the acting came together nicely.
