Drama Assessment Section 1 We chose to do our drama assignment on improvisation as we could make up lines whilst sticking to a certain theme when we were acting. The performance had a minimal script in the sense that it had certain scenes and events, but lines were not fully scripted. My character started off as a young child who was one of the best friends of the protagonist. Our first scene was where we were making a meal for all of our friends who came over at Molly's birthday. We found a recipe book, which we chose a meal out of: Soup. Here, I showed how happy I was, being with my friends and making food. ...read more.


She was contemplating taking her life by overdosing on drugs due to her not being able to rely on friends or family alike. By talking about the script and the issues raised, we worked as a team and built up a script of events and showed how the play could affect the audience. We used lighting to show emotion and pivotal points in the play, for example at the end we had a spotlight over each person when they spoke their thoughts about the situation, as if Molly was concentrating on each of them herself. The lighting made it easier for the audience to see people that were doing important parts in the scene, too, like in the Soup scene; the lighting was brighter on the people that were singing rather than people in the background. ...read more.


We had the audience anonymously tell us their opinions on the play so we could discover more about how (or if) we affected them, if the acting was good and generally if they enjoyed it. Most response slips seemed positive and we gathered that the character the audience enjoyed the most was Cameron as the teacher since he was funny, but demonstrated the cruelness that some teacher may use in class, too. Also, the audience was wholly Year 7's for the first performance that we were assessed on, so we aimed the play at them. At the end, we left the play on a cliff hanger as we never saw if Molly took the pills or not, and we prompted the audience to ask themselves how they thought it should end. ?? ?? ?? ??
