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".

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.
