Live like pigs and refugees drama comparison

Extracts from this document...


Live like pigs and Refugees drama comparison Live like pigs has the same background as the devised refugee piece because both pieces are to do with moving to different places and also changing themselves. There home is also pretty much the same to as in the live like pigs piece they live in a condemned broken tramcar on a caravan site which is not a practical place to live, and in the refugees piece they have to move to a place with conditions like the place in live like pigs.

I think the refugee piece is a Stanislavski theory because of the detail which makes the audience engages with the characters and the storyline.
