Introduction

DRAMA GCSE PORTFOLIO SECTION TWO - DEVELOPMENT - Too much Punch for Judy This Development Essay is based on Section one of the play "Too much Punch for Judy".

As this character is a typical man from the town who is out to have a good time I would expect him to be dressed in a cap, some jeans, a white adidas type t-shirt and very white trainers. ...read more.
