Twentieth century Drama assignment – Bloodbrothers

Extracts from this document...


Twentieth century Drama assignment - Blood brothers When I wrote my additional scenes I wanted to portray an image of two different families, one wealthy, the other quite poor. I chose to do the twins' birthday because I felt that this would be a perfect example of showing the differences and introducing the class division issues. When writing my additional scenes I had to consider many aspects of the play. For example - The plot; characters and action; setting; themes; language; dramatic devices and stagecraft also, the writers intended effect on the audience.

I think the song at the beginning of the play is very well written and I think that the dancing a singing is symbolic and represent hope and the struggle people make to rise above the restrictions of their daily circumstances. I think that the scenes I have written are symbolic in showing the differences in classes and how different one life can be from leaving one family and moving into another, but the way each of the siblings stand up for each other as if it's life or death. Not even knowing that they are truly blood brothers. ...read more.
