Too much punch for Judy.

Extracts from this document...


Nell Broomfield Morris. Drama coursework. Too much punch for Judy By Mark Wheeler The play 'Too much punch for Judy' involves two sisters, Jo and Judy also their mum-Vi and younger brother Johnnie. Jo and Judy are very close but one night after they had both been drinking, they had a terrible accident in which Jo died, leaving Judy who was driving to pick up the pieces which she doesn't do very well. For our first task we were asked to use still image to introduce the family, in the first picture set before the accident we chose to use split scenes. One side of our picture presented Jo and Vi happily cooking together, Vi has a look of contentment and Jo is smiling, Judy is to the left of the two with a look of resentment towards Jo and the fact that Jo has a better relationship with her mother. ...read more.

Blaming yourself is all part of the grieving process I suppose but you cant think like that or you'll never let go." ...read more.


she is now shouting at Jo "how could you do this again even after what happened? Do you not care? You killed someone else Judy that's two people the same way, are you that stupid? Don't you understand?" Jo circles Judy, "Judy? Judy? You don't get it do you Judy? Judy? It's all your fault! Judy?" Judy is sitting on the floor with her head in her knees crying loudly Jo is circling Judy and repeatedly asking her questions, which are very insensitive, and she sounds very haunting. "I hope you start sorting your life out Judy or you'll be a pathetic wreck for the rest of your life." Jo bends down and says this line right in Judy's face she says it with hate then walks out. Judy is left hysterically crying on the floor she freezes-the lights go off. The ending of the drama is supposed to make you think of the consequences of drink driving it makes you realise how many people are affected by just a few too may drinks. ...read more.
