I WOULD BE PRESENTING A PLAY BASED ON THE PLAY http://mattlally.com/fiction/the_glass_menagerie.pdf
THIS IS A GROUP PROJECT AND I HAVE TO DESCRIBE THE THEME SYMBOL AND THE TYPE OF PLAY . BASICALLY THATS 2 PARAGRAPH SO I DONT EXPECT BID TO BE MORE THAN 18$-$20. THERE MORE INFO ABOUT THE PRESENTION AND THATS 3 AND 4 AS FOR LITERALLY ELEMET I PICK TYPE OF PLAY
- Reader’s Theater: Read a small portion of the play out loud, with different parts read by different members of your group. You need not memorize, but you should practice so that you can read it with the appropriate emotion and without stumbling over the words. In other words, verbally act out the lines. The section should be short, but you should choose a passage that makes sense by itself and that you can explain to the rest of the class. Who is reading what part needs to be clear.
- Summary: You must tell the rest of the class what the play is about. This can be done in conjunction with your first task, if you can mesh the two together.
- Themes & Symbols: You must address at least one key symbol and at least one key theme that are addressed in the course of the play.
- Literary Terms: You must, in some way, address any of the following drama terms that apply:
- Plot structure – this might be something you cover in connection with the summary of the play
- Dramatic Question, Crisis
- Anything pertinent about characters, language, irony
- Staging (props, scenery, type of stage)
- Type of Play-- modern, tragedy, comedy, naturalist, feminist, etc.
- The Play and the Playwright: Tell the class something about the playwright and the background of the play itself – where and when was it written, what was going on in the world at the time, and who the playwright was. This need not take a long time. You might just say: “The play was written in 1945 by John Smith, an Englishman who was a trench soldier in World War II. He wrote the play from his sickbed when he was recovering from receiving grievous injuries in the war. He retuned to his career as an editor for the London Gazette and his play was received very well by critics and a public who was hungry for news and experiential details of those still fighting overseas.”
