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 he is portrayed as a very over the top, cartoon type character, he does not show many heartfelt feelings to the audience, he is a very rude and crude person. 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.
