Introduction

Discuss in detail how you would play either Peter or Willie in Scene 2 of "Blue Remembered Hills". You will need to refer to voice, movement, gesture and facial expression, as well as to know how your chosen character responds to the other character on stage. Scene 6 of "Blue Remembered Hills" starts off with Peter and Willie talking about matches leading on to a character named Wilson "peeing" in a gorse bush and both of them have a laughing fit over the topic. They then talk about Peter being the "Number Two" after Wallace. Willie then tells Peter that he has to go to Donald's house, perhaps to play football. Peter then makes fun of Donald and how his mum treats Donald and that he is scared of his mum. They then talk about jam jars and about collecting them to make money, but Peter says it's a waste of time but he catches Willie being a bit shifty about how Donald got his Jars so he tries to bribe him to tell him about it with comics. ...read more.

Middle

When Willie says the line "Him said as him thought the gorse was on fire and -" I will stretch out my legs and fall back with laughter and start to roll over and when Willie says his next line, I would start to slap the ground, as if its too much for me to take and I will gasp for breath as I laugh hysterically. I will do this for around 10 seconds and then will try to stop it by sitting up but will still carry on for further 5 seconds and through out the whole thing, I would look at Willie now and again. When I say my next line, "Wallace can ... him that" I will have a serious look on my face, as if I'm telling a very important point and will sit cross legged facing Willie. I would say I in a very serious but an excited tone at the same time and I would have my hands on the grass next to me and will play with the small twigs on the ground. ...read more.

Conclusion

I will screw my face up as if I am disgusted by how much of a sissy Donald is and I will then scratch my arm as I say the line "Him's scared of everything" and I will prolong the everything into something like "eeevverrryyythiinngg" and I will turn my head in a circle as I say that word. When Willie says he will go and "call on Donald Duck", I will stop and turn around and face him (we would be walking through the woods) and I would have a look on my face as if Willie is weird to go Donald's house when he could be with me and I'll will then say my line about how it is a "waste of time" and that they be all bloody gone" and I would say this in a matter of fact tone. I would do this because I would not want Willie to prefer Donald to me and I would be prepared to use any means necessary to do this. This is how I would act if I was Peter in this scene ...read more.
