  1. The Ash Girl

    We decided to not use a song, as we then went for a contemporary setting which focuses more on the dramatisation of the piece and not the auditory effects. Props were generally if needed, and we didn't really go as far as to say that they were compulsory, as we felt that props were not needed to all characters.

  2. Comparing 'Under the Bridge', 'Junk' and our own Devised piece Leaving Home.

    I showed this in our own performance when she didn't talk, and hugged her knees as if trying to protect herself. This displays vulnerability. She doesn't adapt unlike Tar and Gemma in 'Junk'. They fit right into their new life, making lots of friends, finding a house to live in and, starting heroin.

He speaks of the police in a negative way, saying they are "cunning, but no more" and their results are "Brought about by simple diligence and activity".

  1. A critical assessment of 2 pieces of drama around the theme of ‘Space’.

    Although we thought that we were capable of producing another piece drama, tensions were building in the group and we agreed to spilt. For the second piece I worked with: Alain Branson Plot The first piece we worked on had a plot that I think was well structured.

  2. Analysis of a Bernardo's advert and a piece of text by Creon.

    The idea was that we developed the freeze frames from the last task, by still doing 'a day in the life of...' but making the freeze frames flow into one another to make more of a mime. Also, including the theme of the heading we were given aswell.
