Introduction

SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME. (ADAM MONOLOGUE) TITLE: Our piece did not have a title. The assessment was called Adam monologue, and we didn't change the name of our piece of work. It has been called Adam monologue, because we have Adam in the cell in the point where he's about to get crazy. We decided to have two Adams as we thought that it would have been more effective to watch. AIM OF THE PIECE: The aim of these piece was to show the theme of survival. In fact, our work only included one scene, but we have shown the inner side of a human being kept in captivity for such a long time. In this case we talk about Adam an American man. Adam is a gentle person, kind, and very proud to be American. He is also the peacemaker, who calms and sustains the other two characters in the play, Edward and Michael, but who is also troubled by terrible dreams and fears. He has known the worst of captivity, because he has been alone in the cell. In the scene we see him troubled by the fear of death. ...read more.

Middle

As the stage offers more space. By looking back at the piece I think that my partner and I have done a good job into getting into Adam mind to try and feel as he would. PROBLEMS I HAVE EXPERIENCED: I think that my biggest problem is the language but I can easily co-operate with it. Another problem that I have experienced is that the character that I have played is not as I am. In fact in the play I had to be really calm and mature, trying to reassure someone else. In life I am a total different person. In fact I wouldn't be walking with my back straight and talking very slowly, trying to keep a very neutral facial expression trying to show no emotion, as I was suppose to be the inner side of Adam. I think that at the end I have done a good job into acting the inner side of Adam. (1069 words) SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME (Edward and Adam role play) TITLE: The piece did not have a title.

Conclusion

STRENGTH AND WEAKNESSES: The piece strength as weaknesses as well. Once again I think that my partner and I have done a good job, because we have done a original piece, which I think has impressed the audience, as we have explored the inner side two men who meets for the first time in a situation of hostages. We wrote a script of the piece so that we would have been able to remember the piece. I think that the main strength of this piece is that I had the opportunity to work with the same partner, and we put very good ideas together. Some of the weaknesses of this piece were that we couldn't act the piece on the stage, I think that it would have been more effective as we would have had more space, and we could have used the lights as well. PROBLEMS I HAVE EXPERIENCED: The major problem in acting this piece was that I was suppose to calm down a man who has just been captured and thrown into a cell. I had to be very patient into the play as Edward kept on interrupting, and kept on asking questions. Looking back at the play I think that I have done a good job into acting Adam, and I also enjoyed it. (976 words) total words count= 2054 ...read more.
