Resonse to Too much punch for Judy.

Extracts from this document...


Drama GCSE Coursework Paper 2 - Portfolio Response Task Katie White The workshop lessons for "Too much punch for Judy" required a lot of imagination and energy; we each had to imagine ourselves in the mind of these characters and how they were feeling. In one of these lessons we created a still image of a good night out, using our body language and facial expressions to create an emotion for everyone to see.

Nob: Nah. Come with me, he's just smug. Jo: Ummm... who are you? Judy: Yeah, I don't think we heard your names? Bob: Oh I'm Bob and this is my mate Nob Jo: ..... Ha-ha you sound like Bill and Bob! Judy: Come on sis, let's get out here. (They walk away in hysterics) This scene really shows the audience how close the sisters were and that they stuck together through life. I think the cross cutting worked very well and it quite a sad effect to the performance because most of the memories are before Joanna died. After this performance, our entire group realised what it was like to be involved in someone's death, because it seemed so realistic. ...read more.
