Writing a Play
you should watch the play from Chabot College. Your original post should be about 200 words The plays you use for reports must have been seen no earlier than one month before the semester started. A play that you saw SEVEN months ago, for example, will not be accepted for these assignments. Music concerts and Dance concerts cannot be used for these assignments. The name of the Play The name of the theater where you saw the play COPY AND PASTE THE LINK TO WHATEVER SHOW YOU WATCH AND GIVE THE NAME OF THE THEATER WHERE THE PERFORMANCE WAS HELD OR THE NAME OF THE GROUP DOING THE SHOW. The Date you saw the play The Playwright’s name (2 points) The Director’s name (2 points) A brief synopsis of what the play was about (three or four sentences) (3 points) Choose ONE of the design elements of the play. You can talk about either the set, lights, costumes or sound (please note that sound design does NOT refer to how the actors use their voices, how loud they are or any of that. Sound design for purposes of this assignment, refers to added sound that is part of the story telling. In your program their should be a sound designer listed. You are analyzing his/her work, not the work of the actors. Sound, for purposes of this report, also DOES NOT mean the music being played as part of a musical. In other words, the work of the actors and the musicians is different than the work of the Sound Designer. For this report focus on the work of the Sound Designer). Give a brief description of what you saw or heard. Talk about why the design choices either worked or didn’t work for the play you saw. Be specific. Avoid just saying things like “I liked it”, or “I didn’t like it.” Give details and explain how they supported, or didn’t support, the play you saw. Choose only ONE design element to focus on. I want you to choose only one element of design to encourage you to go more in depth in your analysis. It is very easy to talk about three different things and give one quick sentence about each. That is not what I am asking for. I would like you to really look at the design you are choosing and make what connections you can as to how those design choices supported or did not support the show you watched. Remember that everyone who participates in putting on a play is a story teller in their own way, and they are all trying to help tell the same story. So think about and write about whether or not the design you choose helped tell the story, or not, and how it achieved this, or, where it missed. Be as specific as you can. (10 points) NOTE THAT THIS QUESTION IS WORTH 10 POINTS. THAT’S 25% OF ALL OF THE POSSIBLE POINTS FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN ABOVE.
