Drama Performance

        The performance of my pre 1900 play, (Electra) I believe was not performed to the best of my ability. I believe this as my pre 1900 was the first play I was to perform and I began to become very nervous, you could see this as I tended to rush my lines and some of the lines were not coming across as clear as I could have said them, I also stuttered on some of my lines as the nerves were appearing, however even with these nerves I kept in character and felt I performed well.

I believe myself and Chantelle put on a good performance despite our mistake at the beginning of the play, this play showed a lot of emotion and came across as a very moving play, I was very pleased with the outcome.
