The elements of drama

Extracts from this document...


The Elements Of Drama I am now going to talk about our piece of drama. We have being studying the topic anorexia for a couple of weeks now. In this piece of drama we have looked at and developed ideas and done some study about' Nervous Conditions'. In this extract a teenage girl has been living in England for a good amount of time and when she comes back to Africa she is finding it very difficult to adapt back to the life she had back in England.

We don't have a narrator because it would be to complicate so we made it easy to follow for our audience. We used monologues to show what our characters are thinking about.
