Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Introduction: Our first unit of work in the IGCSE was Devised theatre. Our theme was ?The unexpected? and we chose this title because there is an always unexpected things that happens in our life. Our play is about a person who once had a family, job, and life, but after he got fired he loses everything. Then later on in the story a devil and an angel appears giving him idea of earning money.
