GCSE Girl Anachronism

Extracts from this document...


GCSE Girl Anachronism In this essay I will be comparing my "Girl Anachronism" play with my year 9 dialogue "Dealer's Choice". I will be comparing the deference between the character I was, the style of the play, the mood, the place and whether it is Stanislavski or Brecht.

In the play we used a variety of music to show the emotions of each scene for example at the beginning of our play we played the stimulus of the play, and before our flash back we played past music to show that we had gone back in time.

The style was a friendly comedy. In this play I was one of the main characters, I was a mid thirty's waiter working in a restaurant I have worked there for years with my mate Sweeny, Sweeny and I and a few other gather once a week to play poker in the restaurant. The play is set in a London restaurant in the kitchen area. These plays are totally different one is a Brecht like play the other is a Stanislavski. One is unrealistic the other is realistic. They are both very good but I like "Girl Anachronism" better, because it was more interesting to act and I had more freedom, and I liked improvising. Vas Panayi Page 1 15/12/2008 ...read more.
