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.

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. ?? ?? ?? ??
