GCSE The Hitman

Extracts from this document...


GCSE The Hitman In this essay I will be comparing my first scripted piece "The Hitman" with my "Girl Anachronism" play. I will be comparing the deference between the character I was, the style of the play, the mood and the place Also I will be comparing weather it is Brecht or Stanislavski.
