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 this because the younger Childs dad is a gypsy so she probably copied her father. I think the refugee piece is a Stanislavski theory because of the detail which makes the audience engages with the characters and the storyline. I think the live like pigs piece is a brecht theory because some of it has social issues which the audience is often made up to face to. Max Taylor ...read more.
